Special Programs

Since the school’s founding, art has always been a basic element of the whole-child curriculum and program at The School in Rose Valley. Grace Rotzel, principal of SRV from 1929–1967, wrote:

“There are two views of education; one, that a man should be educated to be what he is, and the other, to be what he is not. The progressives took the first view, and therefore adopted the broad definition of art as concerned not only with form, color, and movement in a variety of media, but with the uniqueness of the individual.”
