About this school

We are Montessori. That is the guiding principle at River Valley, because Maria Montessori's principles and discoveries don't need to be supplemented, altered, or combined with other methods or philosophies. When Dr. Montessori's principles are the driving force in the classroom, the children flourish. We invite you to come observe our classrooms.
