Our Perspective

How we see Rotman Arts and Science School

Academics are the top priority at Rotman Arts & Science School (RASS). This Kindergarten to Grade 12 school provides small class sizes that allow instructors to focus on the development of individual learners. Students are encouraged to be self-motivated and to actively participate in their own education. RASS also fosters lifelong learning and development and nurtures students’ intellectual and emotional growth to help them to make positive contributions to Canadian society. Students practice discipline, self-management, and responsibility, and learn to think critically and creatively. RASS was founded in 2004 to combine academic education with professional arts training, offer unique opportunities for advanced courses and independent study, and enable students to pursue their individual interests.
