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!!!

My 2 sons are blossoming at Ross. The hands on and well crafted academic program is exceeding my expectations.. The teachers are caring, attentive and enthusiastic. The friendships they have developed are respectful and mindful and the parent body is welcoming and involved. The environment and structures are exptional.

The Department of Homeland Security recently announced that it would enforce a 2017 policy of requiring visa applicants to list their social media handles. More about this and how it impacts international students wishing to attend American K-12 private schools.
We parents are responsible for expanding our children's horizons. We are responsible for showing and explaining things, concepts, and places they have never thought of. This article contains my roadmap for enriching your child's education.
