There is much about the Montessori Model at Riverbend that is distinctive and exciting. But perhaps the most powerful aspect of our approach to Montessori is our ability to bring out the best in each individual learner while creating a lively, connected, caring community. Our dynamic curriculum is at the core of that work.

Our Educational Philosophy

We believe that deep learning happens within a collaborative community built upon mutual respect. Our Montessori approach and low student-to-teacher ratios allow our highly-trained teachers to follow each child through personalized learning plans—while also nurturing a strong sense of community.

Every child is supported to grow academically, socially, and emotionally through:

  • An individualized, academically challenging curriculum that emphasizes critical thinking and flexible problem solving
  • Small, mixed-age classrooms which provide opportunities for peer-to-peer learning and leadership development
  • Multi-year relationships with teachers which result in nurturing and mutually respectful partnerships
  • Collaborative learning opportunities which build students’ teamwork and project management skills
  • Unique extracurricular programs which extend the school day and expose students to new experiences

Joyful and purposeful in their work, our students become self-disciplined, self-assured learners who take control of their education. Our graduates are able to set their own compasses for lives filled with growth, meaning, and happiness.
