Learn about Rossman School as you observe students and teachers on a typical school day during this Weekend Open House. You'll also enjoy a campus tour led by current parents of Rossman School students who are eager to answer your questions and share their perspectives of the Rossman School experience.

Degreed faculty in all these areas incorporate innovative and traditional teaching strategies to implement a stimulating, carefully designed curriculum.

A student-teacher ratio of 8:1 allows teachers to build a personal relationship with each child and combine the school's 97-year tradition of superior academics with the development of integrity and kindness in children.

The School Day Open House begins at 9 a.m. RSVPs are appreciated. For more information and to RSVP, visit rossmanschool.org or contact Katharine Durham, Director of Admission, at 314-434-5877, ext. 203.
