Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
The owners (one of whom is a teacher herself at this school) demonstrate strong leadership to maintaining the academic integrity as well as making this a close-knit community of teachers, parents, and students. As such, parents, kids, and teachers are involved in several activities -- picnics, information sessions, fall festival, earth day festival, graduation ceremonies, just to name a few. PLUS, the founders believe strongly in maintaining the philosophy of Maria Montessori.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Frankly, there is no homework that kids bring to home. Children are expected to complete all their work at school and teachers do a great job in making sure the students are on task. This allows our kids to pursue extra-curricular hobbies or pursue independent learning per their interest at home.

Riverstone has definitely exceeded our expectations in terms of academics as well as social and emotional development of our kids. Our kids are thriving in this close knit community. In addition to academics, which they far exceed any conventional curriculum, they also focus on physical education, business development, and foreign language learning. They have a coffee-house that is managed by students right from hiring of student employees to cooking, waiting, and handling its financial operations. The students gain real-world experience through this. Kids are introduced to Spanish from their primary class and continues through the Elementary and Adolescent years. Overall, glad that we founds this little gem in West Cobb and is well worth the cost.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
Tools to help those feeling bullied and those feeling the need to bully.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
Owned by an AMI trained Montessori Teacher who has been teaching for many years with an excellent understanding of both teachers and parents.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
The children were taught grace and courtesy, and respect through daily interactions and opportunities to practice on a regular basis.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
The Montessori program allows the children daily opportunities to do work in school, leaving their afternoons to enjoy childhood.

We feel fortunate that our children were able to attend RMA through Middle School. Our children were given an exceptional hands on, real world education that gave them practical life skills that they will have for life. From the Primary classrooms through the Elementary and into the Adolescent Program, the children flourished, getting to know themselves and their strengths.

We are thrilled to have 2 children at Riverstone Montessori Academy (RMA). Our children have attended another Montessori school which was not accredited and the difference is obvious. At RMA not only were our children allowed to learn in their own very different styles, but they were also nurtured, supported and given the chance for independence. When in the company of their "traditional school" peers, our children noticed for themselves the differences between the way they are allowed to learn. They pointed out he following differences: A) Stress free and ability to manage their own time, B) Ability to have discussions with the teachers rather than being lectured to and C) Collaborative nature of using the group to bounce ideas, brainstorm and problem solve. As parents, we were pleased with the high level of training the teachers have acquired from AMI. Additionally, the teachers, assistants, and most other staff are friendly and helpful, they all make our family feel welcomed and secure. We couldn't be happier with our decision to choose Riverstone.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Riverstone believes that the class time is when the work should happen. If a child receives homework, it is usually due to the child's own time management or a project that the child chooses to take home. Rarely, if ever, is homework assigned.
