Rothesay Netherwood School has been an integral part of the Saint John and Kennebecasis Valley communities since 1877. Our 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 Science Hall, a newly built, state-of-the-art centre of excellence and innovation for STEM curriculum in the heart of it all.
At RNS, we are known for our high standards of academic excellence. Our rigorous academic program is supported by a low student-to-teacher ratio and a world-class IB curriculum.
Our Middle School Program in Grades 6 to 8 emphasizes structure and academic challenge in a nurturing learning environment where teachers appreciate the uniqueness of every student. And our Senior School Program for Grades 9 to 12 is both challenging and comprehensive, providing students with the opportunity to fulfill their potential by thinking critically and independently, and approaching complex issues with a clear perspective.
 Our faculty and staff are 100% committed to educating, celebrating and supporting each and every student. Students are respected and empowered to become passionate learners and emerge as self-confident individuals who have character, courage, creativity, and a commitment to the community.

We offer traditional core courses as well as athletics, outdoor adventures - including RNS Outdoors - art, drama, music, and STEAM curriculum. It is a balance we have created because we believe the best academic model for learning is both wide and deep.
We have an English as a Second Language (ESL) program that helps our international students master one of Canada's two official languages.
Whether in English class or the Robotics Club, our campus provides a technology-rich, fully connected, immersive learning experience that prepares our students for the future.
