Rowntree Montessori Schools is currently attempting to strengthen its alumni engagement efforts, which I very much appreciate because I would love to stay involved in this community. With respect to parental engagement, I can confidently say there is no better school than RMS for having parents involved in the day-to-day and long term activities and goals of their children. Teachers and school leadership ensure to personalize every relationship they maintain with the parents of their students to ensure parents feel like they are right there alongside their children through their educational journey. Rowntree Montessori Schools also has a Parents' Association, the RMSPA, that organizes events for students and parents alike to increase the sense of community and provide forums where parents can interact with teachers and other parents.
The broader Rowntree Montessori Schools (RMS) community is very inclusive and diverse. The school, in particular, offers a broad range of services to the children, families and wider communities in addition to the core business of teaching and learning for the students. Parent involvement at RMS ranges from an active Parent Association that consistently engage in fundraising activities for the development of the institution to the opening of parent volunteers to participate in school trips, chaperoning students. Additionally, RMS opens its doors to host parents and grandparents to a designated International Day were diverse cultures intertwine. This results in the strengthening of families, building community support, and increasing student achievement and success. The administration of RMS has developed positive relationships with community leaders and had built a network of links to other organisations and individuals. This is evident with Rowntree Montessori Schools (RMS) being nominated twice for the 2018 & 2019 Brampton Board of Trade Business Excellence Award.
