About Richmond Montessori School
Richmond Montessori School is a premier Montessori community, inspiring academic excellence and nurturing human potential. Our dual accreditation gives parents the assurance that our school meets and exceeds the strict standards required to provide an authentic Montessori education.
Within a supportive and engaging environment, Richmond Montessori
School students are inspired through active hands-on experiences guided
by certified Montessori teachers.
In the early years, lessons are
introduced simply and concretely through the use of materials. As
children grow throughout the program, these lessons are reintroduced
with increasing degrees of abstraction and complexity.
strengths are identified and lessons are tailored accordingly, while
maintaining academic, emotional and social standards that all must meet
for advancement to the next level.
