The Roeper School

  • The Roeper School is a uniquely personalized, coeducational school for gifted children in preschool through grade 12 with campuses in Bloomfield Hills and Birmingham, Michigan. At Roeper, we care deeply for children, understand the importance of these formative years and work hard to empower children at every stage and grade. The current condition of our nation and our world demands that we educate children to care for others, think critically and reach for humanistic ideals in all of their interactions. While a Roeper education allows our talented graduates to attend and thrive in the most selective colleges in the country, our school prepares children for far more than college. Our students embody attitudes, values and strategies that enable them to go into the world as leaders and to share their gifts and talents successfully in today's society.

School Reviews

We are very pleased with our kids` time at the Roeper School. Our children have gone from just doing "good enough" work at their former school to really reaching for their perso al bests. They have close and respectful relationships with their teachers, and truly know that their teachers believe in them. I`ve been so happy that the Roeper faculty has encouraged them to broaden their horizons, to engage at an age-appropriate level in the issues of the day, and to care for those around them in a deep and meaningful way. Making the finances work to attend Roeper is not easy, but we are pleased to say that we are glad we have done so. Teachers and staff are happy to be at Roeper, my kids want to go to school every single day, and we parents have been included in the community from day one.
