Excellent school, our daughter has been through pre-k (primary) and has just started first grade. She really likes it and is always excited to go. We are very pleased with the teachers (compassionate and very good instructors), after school child care, and Rita, the principle. We have also been sending her to their summer camp which she really enjoys and is educational. I recommend reading up on the Montessori method of teaching or give RMS a call if you are interested. Its a different culture/approach to teaching and I believe superior to standard education. They emphasize peace, respect and decision making skills along with learning. Every kid I've talked to at RMS is nice and respectful which says a lot. RMS is a great school. The only thing I wish they would do is replace French class with Spanish, and perhaps throw mandarin into the mix.

Amazing!! I am so thankful that we were open to the idea of a Montessori education! Our children are learning to love learning!

We have been sending our children to RMS for 8+ years now. Besides the wonderful foundation in education the Montessori method provides children that they will carry with them throughout their entire life, RMS provides a safe, caring, and loving environment where children are always encouraged yet never pressured. Through this environment of encouragement the children develop a strong personal sense of personal responsibility and self awareness, a deep passion for learning, and a deeper and more profound understanding of how and why in subjects such as Math and Science. RMS children are academically heads and shoulders above their peer group who attend both the public schools and other private schools in the area. RMS children are also easy to spot as they are compassionate, polite, and responsible, 3 character traits that are instilled in the children as young as 3 years old.

I am very impressed with the teachers and education offered by RMS. My daughter is already learning a foreign language at age 3 and has been taught of her continents. They also have a music teacher that comes in every week and my daughter loves this. The program is very well rounded and worth every penny. Rita, the principal stands outside the school to greet the children every morning with a smile. This was the best choice I could have ever made for my childs education.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
