Riverstone Montessori Academy

Posted on: 2/6/2011

Advanced Academics are only the beginning...

My children came to Riverstone after my extensive research of schools while my daughter endured Kindergarten at our districted traditional public school. To make a long story short, I will just say that we went from whining and crying on Sunday evenings about hating to go to school (in kindergarten), to statements like "I can't wait to go back to school on Monday", after being at Riverstone for just a few weeks. At RMA children are not only presented advanced academic concepts through a hands-on approach using the most amazing Montessori Materials, they are also taught peaceful conflict resolution, community service, fine art, music, high standards of nutrition, respect of self as well as of others and of the environment and so much more. All this is done within a peaceful community setting where children can learn at their own pace and are allowed to make choices and to learn from their mistakes within the safety of their own school. My daughter and son have benefitted greatly from this approach to education and as a family we are proud to be part of the Riverstone community. The teachers are nurturing and kind and respectful of the children and the administrative staff is friendly and helpful. The owners of the school are always available to answer questions or address sensitive matters professionally and discreetly. The parental involvement at this school is amazing. We are very happy to count ourselves as members of the RMA family.
