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.
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.
