How people from the school’s community see Rowntree Montessori Schools (RMS)
Top-down influence on the school’s direction and tone
Mr. J. Harris, Director of Education and Academy Principal
Welcome to Rowntree, the largest and longest-running Montessori School in Brampton.
Our Montessori-based Kindergarten Montessori (JK-aged students) and Prep-ONE (SK-aged students) combine with our Elementary programme to provide an integrated and seamless Junior Kindergarten to Grade Eight experience. Rowntree takes a holistic approach to learning and education, with the primary goal of helping children to develop their maximum potential, not only cognitively, but also physically, emotionally, and socially.
The goal of Rowntree’s Elementary curriculum is to meet and exceed the expectations set by the Ontario Ministry of Education, and the school is very proud of its recent initiatives in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Throughout the grades, Rowntree provides a more traditional classroom structure and the pursuit of academic excellence with the nurturing aspects of the Montessori approach. Small class sizes ensure that each child is provided with the attention that he or she needs in order to be successful.
Our commitment to “Nurturing Tomorrow’s Achievers” goes beyond our classroom walls. Co-curricular activities in the arts and athletics ensure a well-rounded school experience, and charitable fundraising connects our students with those in need within our community and around the world. Our LEGO® robotics club’s recent participation in the Provincial championships demonstrated how a strong academic foundation can lead to exceptional results in the co-curricular realm.
We appreciate that school choice can be a difficult one for today’s parent, and we encourage you to start planning for your child’s future now. We are accepting applications for our three Preparatory campuses for children entering Montessori Kindergarten (Junior Kindergarten age) to Grade Three and for Rowntree Academy (JK to Grade Eight). Our Academy campus is truly a first-rate private school environment, with the professional staff and facilities needed to provide an exceptional Elementary school experience.
Every day is an Open House at Rowntree, and we invite you to drop in for a tour any school day between 9:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. For those of you who may not be available on weekdays, we also offer several evening and weekend Open Houses throughout the year. For any questions about the school’s admission process, please feel free to contact Admissions at 905-790-3838 or [email protected].
We look forward to seeing you at Rowntree soon!
