An RNS graduate is confident, respectful, and has the solid foundation to ensure future success.
Rothesay Netherwood School was founded in 1877 and is a proud independent, co-educational boarding and day school for Grades 6 to 12. We are also proud to be a small school and this is by design. RNS educates 285 students each year so that we can offer innovative, world-class learning experiences in a safe and caring school community. As an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School and a member of Round Square, we measure our success by the growth of each of our students. Our campus, set on 125 acres in beautiful Rothesay, New Brunswick, provides the perfect environment to ensure that each student is active and involved. We present just the right amount of challenge for every individual student. RNS provides an abundance of opportunities so all our students reach their utmost potential. An RNS graduate is confident, respectful, and has the solid foundation to ensure future success. Our students go on to attend top universities in Canada and around the world.

What it all comes down to is that RNS is an outstanding school which focuses on the student within a caring and supportive Atlantic Canadian community. The faculty is not only highly qualified and skilled, but they have a true passion for education. They go above and beyond daily as this is not just a job, but a way of life. Anyone who comes for a visit will remark on the incredible school environment. The interaction between students is amazing as are the interactions of students with their teachers. Seeing the school in action is the best way to get a true sense of RNS and the many incredible intangibles the school provides.
Thank you for taking the first steps to making a well-informed decision. We invite you to become a part of the school of choice and encourage you to complete an inquiry or application so that we can connect with you personally. Be sure to book a visit to see for yourself how extraordinary RNS is. We have it all right here for you to discover Your RNS.
