Principal's Message expand

principal

Deborah Renwick, Principal

 

On behalf of our entire staff, I would like to welcome you to Ellington Montessori School.

 

Proud to be a culturally diverse small school, EMS is a tight knit community, an extension of one's family, rather than an institution. The objective of our caring, committed staff is to help guide each child to reach his or her potential academically, socially, and emotionally; and to assist each student in recognizing his or her own capacity to actively make a difference in the world. We seek to incorporate the values of EMS into the daily life and culture of the school, rather than represent them in symbols or rote recitations. Students are encouraged by word, and by example, to respect the talents and perspectives of others and to work together cooperatively in the quest for knowledge.

 

Parental cooperation, communication and understanding are paramount to providing a successful, productive and satisfying educational experience for your child. We welcome your comments and concerns and view education as a partnership between home and school.

 

R.O.A.R...Respect for others, On Time, Academic Excellence and Ready to Learn.

 

Yours in education,

 

Deborah Renwick

Principal

Our Historyexpand

Deborah L. Renwick founded Ellington Montessori School in July 1990. The school began as a corporation and continues as such to date. Ms. Renwick opened the school with the intent of operating a Primary program (3 to 6 year olds), accommodating 20 students. By the end of the first year enrolment was up to 32 children and expansion was on the horizon. By the fall of 1992, the first elementary class was opened and the school eventually expanded, over several years, to include classes up to the 8th grade. Ellington Montessori School maintained a middle school program for four years.

Currently, the school has three classrooms: a Casa class (3 to 6 year olds), a lower elementary (6 to 9 year olds) and an upper elementary (9 to 12 year olds).

The school has grown around a multicultural community, and this is reflected in its population. The faculty and students have always contributed to the community via outreach programs and various community services.
