Small class size and differentiated instruction help students at Rochelle Zell find and develop their individual voices.


They solve problems creatively and collaboratively, cultivate respect for individual differences, and develop a deep dedication to learning.


Our teachers are deeply committed to providing students with a comprehensive and well-rounded high school experience, and the fine, performing and literary arts program is an integral part of the school’s philosophy and curriculum.
