Additional notes: We have our own bus; however, it is not used to trasport students to and from school. It is used during and after the school day, and on weekends, to take students to the city, or some type of planned event.
How we see Rothesay Netherwood School
How Rothesay Netherwood School sees itself
"Founded in 1877, Rothesay Netherwood School (RNS) is a progressive, co-ed, boarding and day school for Grades 6 to 12. We offer rigorous academics in a beautiful, safe community that is supported by low student-teacher ratios and a world-class IB curriculum. Our mission is to provide a nurturing environment where students are empowered to embrace their individuality while pursuing the greater good. Our graduates are compassionate leaders determined to make a difference in the world."
"RNS has a daily Advisor Program that is truly unique. It ensures that each student receives the highest possible level of emotional and social support from our tremendously committed faculty and staff. Our well-rounded student support services provide our students with encouraging words when they need them. And our University Placement office works one-on-one with students as they make their post-secondary education decisions, helping them navigate the application and scholarship process."
"RNS is a small school with a big reputation worldwide. We are recognized across Canada and around the world for our 100% commitment to educating, celebrating and supporting each and every student. Our position at the forefront of education is because of our inspired and inspiring faculty and staff. Our highly-qualified, committed teachers know every student, and every family, by name. They work tirelessly toward our students' education and enrichment."
"Our day mirrors a typical adult working day: We start at 8:15am and end most days at 5pm. We have a rich academic program, followed by participation in competitive or non-competitive physical activities like field hockey, soccer, tennis, yoga, track and field, rugby, martial arts, or rowing, to name a few. We also have a passion for promoting the arts. Students can join bands, develop their visual arts skills, act in plays or a musical, or take on costume or set design."
"The RNS community is a family. If students arrive on the Hill feeling a little apprehensive, their nervousness is fleeting thanks to the friendliness, encouragement, and welcoming nature of not only our faculty and staff, but of the other RNS students and families. All of our students are immediately embraced; they are supported, assured, and cheered on throughout their journey (and beyond!) at RNS."

Almost a century and a half ago, Rothesay Netherwood School (RNS) was established as a place where students would receive an education of excellence that would meet their individual interests, abilities, passions, and needs. I am proud to say that this tradition continues today.
RNS is a small school with a big reputation worldwide. We are an independent, co-educational boarding and day school for students in Grades 6 to12 that is situated on the tree-lined banks of the majestic Kennebecasis River in the charming town of Rothesay, New Brunswick. We offer a rigorous academic program and extraordinary life experiences to a diverse student body that hails from both Canada and around the world.
We are a school that is distinctive in so many ways. We provide a safe and nurturing learning environment that presents students with unparalleled opportunities to make an impact on our extraordinary 125-acre campus as well as in the nearby community. Our vibrant and fully integrated academic, residential, and co-curricular experience is sustained by a diverse and exceptional faculty and staff that is 100% committed to celebrating, supporting, and challenging every one of our students so they can be their best.
Please feel free to reach out to us should you require other information before you choose where your child will be pursuing their path. I look forward to the possibility of your family being an active part of our community.
