Spotlight on RPS
First Grade Teacher
Through multi-sensory, differentiated instruction, Mrs. Corbin helps our first graders develop a love of reading, writing, math, science, and social studies, laying a solid foundation for the years to come. Her Master’s in Education with certification as a Reading Specialist ensures her students get the individual attention they need to optimize their growth as learners.
Dr. Britt – a published composer and conductor of a 65-voice choir in New York – encourages his singers to make connections between the pieces and other subjects they’re studying (like collaborating with the foreign language department while working on Debussy’s “Trois Chansons”). With Dr. Britt, Rutgers Prep’s singers have performed at renowned NYC venues like SubCulture and Carnegie Hall. Yes, that Carnegie Hall.
Dean of International Students, Associate Director of the Innovation Center
Mrs. Lahiri and the Innovation Center at Rutgers Prep have organized five G.E.T. (Girls Exploring Technology) conferences, bringing industry leaders to campus to offer hands-on opportunities for girls to learn about careers in tech. She is also directing a group of students in developing a board game centered around cybersecurity for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.
Middle School Science Department Chair
Mrs. Zboray not only teaches science, but also studies the neuroscience of how we learn and applies it to her classroom. Her toolkit of various teaching methods - like interactive notebooks, response boards, student cohort groups, and hands-on dissection - give her students the tactile experiences and “Aha!” moments that develop more neural connections in the brain, thus solidifying learning in the long term.
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.
