Preparatory School

There many unique opportunities for learning and growth in St. Kitts for children as there are for their parents at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM).


The RUSVM Preparatory School serves children of students and faculty of RUSVM. We have a globally, enriched US-style curriculum, enabling students to transition smoothly into schools of their choice when they leave St. Kitts. Teachers hold current US teaching credentials for the subjects and levels they teach. In addition to the core classroom teachers, we are fortunate to have specialists in art, music, library, and information technology. In short, the RUSVM Preparatory School is a delightful place for children to explore and learn.

We strive to ensure that each student achieves academic success, develops a lifelong love of learning, and becomes a responsible citizen in a global community. This is achieved through an enriched US curriculum taught by teachers who are committed to motivating students and working in partnership with parents.

We have a great group of students at the RUSVM Preparatory School. As we look at the growing roster and the diversity of cultures and nationalities of our student body, it makes us realize that we are truly participants in a global society. In order for our students to be citizens of today, they must learn to understand and celebrate cultures and differences, and that is what we do at the RUSVM Preparatory School.

We believe that you are going to have an exciting, positive experience at our school. You will discover that this is a very special place where you will create memories that will last a lifetime.


RUSVM Preparatory School is a fully US accredited school.
