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.

Children’s 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.

Self-motivated and confident, Richmond Montessori School students graduate primed for success.

Our values
  • Community of diverse, dynamic learning, and service.
  • Character through personal empowerment, integrity and accountability.
  • Authenticity of Montessori curriculum, philosophy, and method.
  • Respect for self, others, and environment.
  •  Excellence in academics, leadership and accreditation.
