Red Cedar School


“I’m so happy that this school exists. I only wish we had found you sooner. We feel that we have our son back again. He’s happy, he’s excited about school, he’s enjoying learning again, and he feels good about himself. Why did we wait so long?” – Parent of middle school boy

“There is truly a culture of respect and it creates a community of learners — students who love to learn and are actively engaged in their education.” – Former parent

“Because students know their input is valued, they are energized to do their best – to take chances. Communicating well, asking probing questions, expressing oneself, all requires courage. RCS gives each student respect, which imparts courage, and the rest flows from there.” – Parent of primary and upper elementary girls

Our sons have thrived at Red Cedar partly because of how personal, attentive and respectful your approach is, but also because of the rigorous academics. They have been motivated to do so much because of your high expectations and because of how meaningful and interesting the work is. – Parent of upper elementary and high school boys
