Revealing the unlimited supply of Bravery within is empowering
Children thrive when they can adventure and embrace challenges. We infuse active outdoor learning and exploration of our rambling-river campus into class lessons and our after school enrichment structure. The robust offerings of mountain bike riding, kayaking, ropes course, rock-wall climbing, frisbee golf, hiking, and camping are a direct education to tap into inner courage. Through ceaseless encouragement and repeated opportunity, Rumsey students create the habit of surpassing their personal limits ...over and over again.
It takes courage to speak out loud in front of friends and teachers; yet, the reward of accomplishment is worth breaking through the threshold of doubt. From Lower School poetry recitations to Upper School declamations, public speaking is an essential function of a Rumsey education.
