The Founders | Mary B. Rossman & Helen Schwaner
Rossman’s founders were products of the Saint Louis city school system. They received their teacher training at the normal school, which eventually became Harris Stowe College. Both were veteran teachers with experience at various Saint Louis schools by the time they began to think of opening a school of their own, and both assumed some of the teaching duties when Rossman was founded.
The Original Campus | 5438 Delmar Boulevard
Built in 1905 as the residence of a St. Louis real estate developer, the original Rossman School building was chosen for it’s location. It was in an excellent neighborhood for the students the school wished to attract.
