Ranney School is Beginner(3yrs.)-12th grade co-educational independent day school was established in 1960 to foster the individual aptitudes of students, to provide a warm and nurturing learning community, and to instill a life-long love of learning. Over the past five decades, the school’s core values of knowledge, vision and honor have built the foundation of our school and created a legacy of distinction that we take pride in upholding. We also recognize that in order to maintain our tradition of achievement, our school must be innovative and adaptable to prepare our students for an evolving, global world. As an independent school, we have the opportunity to provide a flexible, responsive, non-traditional learning environment in which we can cherish and grow our students’ unique talents and interests, cultivate lifelong relationships, advance healthy competition, and inspire a balance of mind, body and character—all of which guide our students to reach their fullest personal potential. Therefore, our teachers and students are not only held to the highest standards, but they are also encouraged to be forward-thinkers and to seek out innovative ways of imparting and understanding knowledge so that our graduates can enter the world as confident, passionate, empathetic, versatile young adults
We envision Ranney School as a nurturing learning community, in which families, faculty, alumni and all of Ranney’s constituents collaborate to distinguish and value every child, foster individual talents, sustain powerful connections between children and adults, and graduate resilient global citizens.
