Rothesay Netherwood School has been an integral part of the Saint John and Kennebecasis Valley communities since 1877. Our self-contained campus is reminiscent of prestigious institutions such as University of Toronto, McGill, Harvard and Oxford - and it features academic, residence, athletic and dining facilities that are second to none, including a newly built wellness centre in the heart of it all.
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.
