"Rowland Hall truly instilled so many fundamental qualities in me: confidence in myself and my academic abilities, the ability to be a leader, how to work as a member of a team, the importance of being kind to others, and dedication to my community. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to attend Rowland Hall because I know it laid the foundation for all that I have been able to accomplish as an adult." READ MORE

Anna Reganis ’15


"By the time I was eleven years old, I knew that Rowland Hall was instrumental in shaping who I had become and who I was going to be. This is a school where teachers and students value and care deeply about each other. Since first grade, my teachers have always been there to listen to me, challenge me, and calm me down (in high school) when I had test anxiety." READ MORE

Zach Levinthal ’15


"Rowland Hall is all about community. A community comprised of people who look out for one another. We have each other’s backs. We are taught at an early age to reach out to help each other without reservation or hesitation. Our teachers invest time into us and we invest time into each other and the intense Rowland Hall process and discipline of learning how to learn. We create lifelong bonds and absorb the meaning and importance of these bonds." READ MORE

Lawrence Benjamin ’07


"Rowland Hall taught me the importance of seeking out mentorship throughout my academic career. The small class sizes of Rowland Hall always appealed to me, and they were one of the main reasons I wanted to attend the school...I built fantastic relationships with many of my teachers over the years; some have even been over to my family’s home for Thanksgiving dinner."

David Marquardt ’04


"They call us ‘lifers,’ Rowland Hall students who started in 2PreK, and attend all the way through graduation, which for me was in 2004. In those 16 years, Rowland Hal taught me to love learning. I credit Rowland Hall with giving me the foundation to build my life that I love living. On a daily basis, the guidance of the administrators, the wisdom of my teachers, and the care of my coaches imbued in me a sense of purpose." READ MORE

Nicole Pershing ’02


"As an M.D./Ph.D. student at Duke University, the road I have taken has been long, and some might say crazy, but I feel lucky to be here. The support of family, friends, and teachers that started with my Rowland Hall education makes me excited to start each day with the hope of discovering something new or helping a patient through a difficult time. From my earliest years in Lower School, I remember learning about the magic of the world around me through both experiential and classroom learning." READ MORE

Noelle Teske ’02


“I always loved science and had some great teachers at Rowland Hall, including Peter Hayes, whose energy was just infectious, and Keith Pankow, who really led me to love and be confident in my abilities in more mathematical science like physics. This was invaluable for my college courses like physics and organic chemistry to get me into medical school! I didn't decide until years later that I wanted to do medicine, but the science and math curriculum at Rowland Hall definitely prepared me well. I'm actually even more grateful for the wonderful humanities preparation, as philosophy and psychology were my first academic loves, and my writing ability and analytical thinking have really served me well both in medical school and succeeding in this field."

Christina Lau Billings ’98


"It's hard to imagine my life without Rowland Hall—I met my husband there and our son attends school there. I have lived all over the country and have family spread around the world, so being a part of the Rowland Hall community gives me a sense of grounding and connection. Being an ethnic and religious minority in Utah, I value the diversity of thought and open-mindedness that the school fosters." READ MORE

Ashley Rothwell-Campagna ’95


"Rowland Hall laid the foundation for who I am and taught me many things that I have carried into my adult life—most notably confidence, a strong work ethic, and persistence. I was lucky enough to be a Rowmark Ski Academy student beginning in eighth grade and went on to ski for an NCAA Division 1 program at St. Lawrence University in New York for which I was named MVP my freshman year."

Geoff Swindle ’94


"For the first time in my educational experience, I was encouraged to think outside the box and was given numerous tools to explore my creative thinking. One of the unique attributes of Rowland Hall is that it not only provides, but also encourages, students to pursue a variety of interests to help shape them for the future." READ MORE

Katie Pavia ’08


"I am grateful to all my Rowland Hall teachers for building and fostering a love of math and science but also teaching me that the people you work with are at least as important as the content you're learning. Nancy Peterson, Sally Shepard, Peter Hayes, Janice DelMar, Mason Kjar, and Jo Edwards all shaped my thinking as a scientist."

Liz Shackman ’04


"My time at Rowland Hall and Stanford definitely prepared me for the hard work of medical school. I still make the same types of study guides in med school that I started making in high school, just with 20 times more information in them."

Sam McConnell ’95


"Growing up I always knew I wanted to do something in the arts, and I hoped I might have some positive impact, but I had no idea what that might look like, or how to get there. Luckily, Rowland Hall gave me the freedom to explore my imagination, the confidence to pursue my own path, and an appreciation for the community around me. Rowland Hall offered an abundance of creative opportunities, and I dove right in." READ MORE

Natasha Kwendakwema ’05

“I first thought about becoming a doctor while on a mission trip to Peru with (Rowland Hall Spanish teacher) Matt Burnett and a few students from Rowland Hall during which we got to work with physicians. After college, though, I interned at a news station because I also thought I might want to go into broadcast news. After that experience, I decided to finish my premed prerequisites and apply to medical school. My family members were great mentors for me, especially my mom, who encouraged me to apply to medical school even though I hadn’t followed a traditional route.”
