Our Mission: The Raleigh School is a cooperative community of children, parents and teachers that fosters a love of learning in an atmosphere of challenge, inquiry and respect.


Why TRS?

At The Raleigh School, we know these things without any doubt:

Children need to play.

Children are curious.

Children like challenges.

Children respond to respect.

When children, teachers and parents come together, amazing things happen. That is The Raleigh School.

Everything we do here is designed for one purpose only — to educate young children in an ideal manner. Since the 1950s, we've embraced the concept of education based on what's best for the child. Our active, hands-on approach, our nurturing community, our emphasis on challenge and our partnership with parents all are core to our beliefs.

Teachers and parents thoughtfully partner to ensure each child's unique capacities and learning styles are recognized and encouraged ... Every morning our children literally ran to their classrooms, thrilled by the prospect of what each new day might bring!
