My kids are thriving at Ross! Unfortunately, we have had to move a couple of times due to my career so my wife and I have experienced a few different schools with our children. From Connecticut to New York, Public to Private: Ross stands out by far. Amazing curriculum, beautiful place and most importantly an incredibly caring community of teachers, parents and students.

Well worth every penny. My son is on the upper campus at Ross and loves it. Amazing in all ways. Great, professional and knowledgeable staff, beautiful campus, delicious food,and challenging work, what else can you ask for in a school. I highly recommend Ross for anyone who is looking for a college like environment for their child. If you think it's not affordable look into the merit scholarships and financial aid that is offered. Well worth it!!!
