Discover This School

Rooftop strives to be much more than a school. Students, staff, and parents work together to create a respectful, caring community of learners focused on developing the unique strengths of each child. Rooftop's challenging educational program integrates the arts to empower all students to become academic achievers, critical thinkers, and effective problem-solvers. Rooftop's staff and students commit to a pledge of respect which acknowledges the worth and dignity of all of its members: Acceptance and tolerance is a personal decision that comes from the belief that everyone is valuable and worthy of respect.

Afterschool programs

We offer after school childcare through the non-profit named CASA, which exists as an independent entity. Parents/Caregivers must reach out to CASA to apply for a spot in the after school program, which operates on a first come, first served basis. Rooftop also hosts some after school enrichment classes such as Spanish, Chess, Coding, and Chorus. Our middle school has teacher led tutoring and after school sports. Note: We do not offer any after school childcare on our campus for our preschool students. CASA and other enrichment programs are not licensed for preschool aged children.
