The best way to learn about us is to visit during school hours...

... to see our students and teachers engaged in learning. That's why we encourage parents to schedule a personal tour with our Director of Admissions, Fran Sonneborn. You will be guided through our classrooms, speak to teachers and students (they love to talk about what they're doing!), and meet our Head of School, Marilyn Stewart (warning – she loves to chat a lot about Red Oaks, too!)
