Thank you for taking the time to inquire about Regent School. It is clear that you are getting ready to make one of the most important decisions a parent ever makes: “Which school is right for my child?” As a parent, you know that all children are not alike. Each child has his or her own special talents, interests, developmental patterns, and emotional needs. A school that is right for one may not be the best choice for another.
I would like to discuss several reasons why Regent School could be the best choice for you and your child:
Your child won’t be lost in the crowd. Regent School is small. Teachers get to know every one of their students well. An important outgrowth of the close teacher-student relationship is trust. Students feel free to discuss ideas and problems with their teacher. As a result, Regent School becomes an extension of your family.
Your child will be in a disciplined environment. Self-discipline, responsibility, and self-motivation result from an environment that is both nurturing and well ordered. Regent School is able to provide a disciplined environment because we have total control over who is admitted, who stays and how students are expected to behave. Individual attention, close teacher-student relationships, ability to participate--all work together to create happy children. And happy children are not discipline problems.
Your child will develop sound values. Regent School is a non-sectarian school. But we still espouse important moral and ethical standards and require that children apply them in their daily lives. We provide a framework of values upon which your child can develop character and a wholesome orientation to life.
Look beyond the facilities. When you are looking at schools, please realize that superior education can occur in unpretentious surroundings. Regent School is not big and fancy. It is the curriculum, the teachers, and the learning environment that create an outstanding educational experience for your child.
Your child will experience good “peer pressure.” Our students, bound by common goals and aspirations, find an environment where peer pressure works toward education. It is an atmosphere where academic achievement is valued and does not conflict with social acceptance. We know that intellectual curiosity cannot be “taught” but can be “caught.”
Regent School is directly accountable to the families we serve. If you select Regent School and keep your child here, it will be on the basis of results--the solid academic preparation and personal growth that you see occurring in your child. Performance is what has built and maintained the reputation of Regent School in our community for over 60 years.
