Life at Rothesay Netherwood School is active and fulfilling. Students feel like they are living at a home away from home. There's so much for them to do - from academics to sports from drama to travel - where strong relationships are established and life lessons are learned. And giving back to the community is also part of the experience, helping students form a solid foundation for meaningful involvement in their future communities, wherever they may be.
Our students come from all over Atlantic Canada, across the country and around the world, and each student brings a unique perspective that helps to enrich life at RNS. This diversity in our student body helps to foster an understanding of different cultures and religions. The friendships that develop at RNS last a lifetime.

Over the past years, students have joined our school community from all parts of the globe, including: the Bahamas, Bermuda, the Commonwealth of Dominica, Egypt, Germany, Ghana, Grand Cayman, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Jamaica, Japan, Mexico, Nigeria, Romania, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates. The diversity of cultures represented at the school creates a sense of understanding for each student of their place in the global community.

The RNS Community

Rothesay Netherwood School is a vibrant and dynamic community. We encourage our students, faculty, and parents to involve themselves in all aspects of school life. Our school community becomes stronger through our interaction and contributions, and we all benefit as the school continues to improve.
RNS is a busy place with lots of challenge and opportunity for each student. About half of our students are boarding students, and the other half are day students. Day students participate fully in school life, but they just happen to sleep at home.
