Spotlight on RPS
A Caring Community
Our teachers are multidimensional educators – as coaches, advisors, mentors, and friends, they are involved in the lives of their students beyond the classroom.
Experts in their Field
The majority of our faculty hold advanced degrees including many with doctoral degrees in their subject matter. They are experts in their field, equipped with the knowledge to create a transformational experience in the classroom.
Committed to Their Craft
Our teachers regularly engage in professional development, ranging from 30-minute webinars to weeklong national conferences with hundreds of attendees. Their commitment to lifelong learning means they are always up-to-date with the current best practices, techniques, and tools needed to prepare their students for an ever-changing world.
Passion Beyond Curriculum
Teaching a subject such as Math or English is the daily task of a teacher, but looking beyond the content and breathing life into the curriculum is a passion. Our educators discover links between academics and creativity, opening doors in our students’ curious minds.
Kids Who Code
Students start learning to code in Grade 3 at Rutgers Prep, and they might not stop until completing our Post-AP Advanced Software Design class in the Upper School. Giving them access to cutting edge tools and technologies keeps us at the forefront of tech education.
Our Alumni Lead With Confidence
"Any time I talk about my grade school and high school experience I always go back and say RPS trained me so extremely well for what I went on to do in life. When I got to college at Johns Hopkins, I realized Rutgers Prep really gave me the tools to succeed."
– Violette Renard Recinos '94, M.D.; Section Head, Pediatric Neurosurgery, Cleveland Clinic
With 22 state, sectional, and county championships won by our athletic teams in the last five years, our student athletes exceed expectations in and out of the classroom.
RPS Voices is a platform that offers insights, tips, experiences, and motivation written by the members of the Rutgers Prep community. This open forum brings us all to the table to think creatively and explore topics including art, music, sports, and civil discourse.
With 21 Advanced Placement course offerings and roughly 60 student organizations in the Upper School, our students pursue their passions both in and outside of the classroom.
Ideas cannot be fenced in. They tend to creep out, explode and create. Rutgers Prep students are creative, intellectually curious, and have the desire to make new connections. At the first-ever TEDxRutgersPrep event, students created a unique gathering in their community that unleashed new ideas, inspired and informed.
