We have been very happy with Rohan Woods. We went left for a brief period, because we lived in a great school district. However- nothing compares to RWS. So, we came back. My daughter has excelled academically as well as personally at this school. Staff and teachers go above and beyond. I always feel my daughter is safe and well cared for at the school. The other kids and families who attend Rohan Woods are all just genuinely nice people. I'm so glad that we came back! I'd recommend to any family, especially if your kids thrive best with 1:1 connections.

My daughter absolutely loves Rohan Woods, and have been enrolled for 4+ years. She is very comfortable, and views the school, her teachers, and friends just like family. As her father, I feel very connected to Rohan Woods, and have many opportunities to engage throughout the entire experience. Awesome!

Outstanding staff! I have two children at RWS, one in senior kindergarten and one in early childhood! Each teacher is perfect for the grade they teach and are passionate about education.This is a place that is inclusive, parents and students will feel at home immediately.

Really a great school. Very satisfied with the progress we've seen in my child in PK. Had a much worse experience in a different school last year so we're ecstatic we found Rohan Woods.

We love Rohan Woods School!! The is one of the best kept secrets in St Louis private schools. The staff and children are warm and accepting. You immediately get the warm and fuzzies when you walk in the door. The education is top notch , class sizes are small, and there is an amazing sense of down-to-earth community. This is the real deal.

I love this school, and am so sad to be leaving the nest next year. Honestly I couldn't ask for a more nurturing environment. One of the things I love most about this school is how each teacher knows each child on a personal level, every morning when I walk into school I am greeted by each and every student or teacher I see. This school has been more than a second home. I know that I am more than prepared for secondary school next year. You should defiantly look at this school
