Ranney School is an independent coeducational, college preparatory day school with a focus on individualized attention and fostering each student’s passions. The school serves more than 600 students from age 3 through grade 12. Its mission is to “nurture intellectual curiosity and confidence to inspire students to lead honorably, think creatively and contribute meaningfully to society.”
Founded in 1960, the school has an emphasis on creating lifelong learners and readying students for whatever challenges lie ahead. Classes and extracurricular activities include fine/performing arts, top-ranked robotics teams and 40 varsity, junior varsity and middle school athletic teams.
Ranney School offers a college counseling process that starts in 8th grade. Students are exposed to a wide range of opportunities to become well-rounded individuals who aren’t afraid of stepping outside their comfort zones.
Staying Strong in Challenging Times
Ranney School pivoted to online learning on short notice during the pandemic and boasts a daily synchronous learning schedule with simulcast classes available for those choosing to learn at home. The school’s faculty worked tirelessly to build an effective, supportive online learning environment for students of all ages.
“I believe that our promise to know and value every student, combined with our proactive approach to soliciting parent feedback enabled us to adapt to these new circumstances quickly, while maintaining our commitment to academic excellence,” says Head of School Dr. John Griffith.
Students found innovative ways to build community and stay connected. From the Ranney Student Council Weekly Quarantine Show to a virtual Coffee House, creativity continued to flourish at Ranney.
During the 2020-2021 school year, the Ranney School campus will be open for in-person instruction, five days per week, while allowing families the flexibility to opt for their children to continue distance learning from home.
The school’s Reopening Task Force, comprised of members of the Board of Trustees, Medical Advisory Board and administrative leadership team, has developed a comprehensive strategy to bring the community back together on campus.
The school’s primary focus is to maintain the health and safety of its students, faculty and staff. Whether students are on campus or learning remotely, Ranney School will continue to deliver the best education possible and maintain its absolute commitment to know and value every child.
