Since 1901, Roland Park Country School has been graduating driven and spirited women who take the world by storm. Many of our alumnae can pinpoint a moment, a class, or a teacher who inspired them to be the women they are today. Although these three women profiled here have had different career paths and a diverse range of experiences, you can clearly see how they credit their remarkable teachers at RPCS for pushing them – teaching them lessons that they now pay forward to others.
