For the past 75 years, children throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area have enjoyed and benefited from a Rohan Woods education. Generation after generation, families have discovered that Rohan Woods is most certainly a special place. Visitors at the school often ask what makes us different…while the answer can vary from person to person, there are some pillars upon which our school is built.
As we begin our 75th year, I am proud to say that we have continued Mrs. Rohan’s belief that the true reward of education is the knowing smile of a confident child. Rohan Woods fosters a partnership between the school and each family which builds this confidence. Here, we believe children deserve to feel safe in the knowledge that we are devoted to upholding the promise and potential of every individual in our caring community. We are a family committed to enriching the lives of our children – by taking the time to listen, understand and help. At Rohan Woods School, we know the difference a simple smile can make.
We have one central theme as we open our doors each morning; children are the heart of our school and all that we do. While strong academics are essential, so too are strong minds equipped with the tools to make the right decisions and, with support, to make a purposeful leap of faith. Each of us plays a vital role in preparing them for life and encouraging them to take the necessary risks that lead to growth.
At Rohan Woods, we welcome the spirit of independence and join our families in proudly celebrating the joy of knowing that we are their home. We are a place where every child’s independence is celebrated, not extinguished and where people are proud in spirit yet humble in action. We are not, however, just another independent school. We like to think that Rohan Woods is St. Louis’ “Independence School.”
Thank you for visiting our website today. The premise behind our site is to share with you a bit more about our school, our core values and the true sense of community that our families enjoy. We have heard, time and time again, that one truly doesn’t “get” the Rohan Woods experience until they step inside our doors… So, I invite you to visit Rohan Woods School to discover how a small school can make such a big difference in the life of a child.
