ROCKY HILL SCHOOL

Rocky Hill’s unique teaching method is particularly advantageous for international students. The modern “Harkness” classroom style arranges students around a table rather than in rows and ensures all students participate in classroom discussions and collaborative problem solving. Students at Rocky Hill develop outstanding language skills and are constantly challenged to excel academically.
