    "Roycemore is The School that gets it on the North Shore. This North Shore gem cultivates a strong academic environment while emphasizing the social/emotional development of the children. It is small (one class per grade), which fosters a high degree of responsiveness to kids and parents alike. On the academic front, although Roycemore is not a gifted school, the faculty use a gifted model of education and differentiate the instruction according to kids needs with the help of a gifted coordinator. At the same time, kids free time is respected: they are not given tons of homework for the sake of it. The teachers and leaders are amazing. As you may have noticed, I am quite detailed oriented. My wife and I visited all the schools of the North Shore and more (Central Elementary, Avoca West, Sears, Baker, Chiaravalle, North Shore Country Day, Lyc e Francais etc.), and this is the best by far. I am limited to 1000 characters. Go to greatschools.org to read longer reviews."

    "Best parenting decision ever for our seven-year old. Here is why: The faculty: The teachers are incredible and genuinely care for each single child. Great teacher to student ratio (1/14) and excellent leadership. The diversity: 48% students are non-Caucasian. The school models a sense of social responsibility by taking part into community-oriented projects. Differentiation: The pedagogical approach is all about differentiation. In the lower school, the kids break up into need-based groups across two grades (first and second, third and fourth) for reading and math, with support from a gifted coordinator. Academics are very strong. Ethics: The lower school participates in a great program that emphasize seven habits including collaboration, respect for others, self-motivation, organization, etc. The teachers design imaginative activities prompting the kids to apply those habits in real life. The space: The facilities are bright, clean, and colorful. WE LOVE ROYCEMORE!"

    "Roycemore is a truly unique place where my kids are thriving. I have 2 children in Roycemore's Lower School, one of whom struggles with learning differences and other of whom is far above grade level. It amazes me that both of them are doing amazingly well. THIS is true differentiation (a word I hear but do not see often). All that, plus they get 40 minutes to eat lunch, 45 minutes at recess and 30 minutes of PE, each of these EVERY DAY!!! Best of all, they LOVE going to school each day. I could not be happier with our experience at this wonderful, loving place."

    "This is our second year at Roycemore and we couldn't be happier. We came to the middle school from a selective enrollment CPS school. They went from having 30 kids in their class to having 10 and the change has been monumental. They have grown by leaps and bounds. Their teachers know them so well. They know their strengths and weaknesses and they create an environment where your child flourishes in an incredibly supportive environment. The incredible teachers and the small class sizes are what allow for a very individualized approach to my children's education that was lacking at CPS."

    "Stellar small school with outstanding academics, dedicated and loving faculty, and a family feel. My son just graduated from high school. He took 8 APs, felt totally supported, and got into a highly selective liberal arts college early decision. Thank you, Roycemore!"
