I’m very pleased to welcome you to the Ring Mountain Day School website. What you’ll find is an overview of the programs and classes that, along with parents, teachers, and students, comprise the RMDS experience. What is less easy to see through an online visit, but inescapable once you’ve walked onto campus, is that RMDS is a school where children are happy to be, where teachers love to teach, and where parents are partners in the adventure of a Ring Mountain education.
“Quality schooling” in the words of Pat Bassett, president of the National Association of Independent Schools will be measured, for our 21st century schools and students, not so much by the content taught, but rather by a “handful of essential skills and values [which will produce] graduates who are ethical and successful contributors and leaders in their families, their communities, the workplace, and the world.” (Bassett Blog, 2011/11, nais.org)
Achievement. Character. Inspiration. At RMDS, quality schooling arises from a shared commitment to these essential skills and values. They are the standard by which every lesson, school trip, and interaction on campus is measured. Informed by the conviction that “education will last a lifetime,” it is our mission to prepare our graduates to be ethical and successful contributing members of the 21st century communities they will enter and lead.
On behalf of the students, teachers, and parents who share a passion for Ring Mountain Day School, exemplify its core values, and embody a remarkable learning community, I invite you to come visit and discover why.
