I personally loved going to school at Rowntree Montessori Schools because I truly enjoyed spending time with my classmates, learning new material from my teachers, and being involved in everyday school life. As a result of the small class sizes, I never felt alone or isolated because there was always someone around to spend time with, and my teachers all knew me and made efforts to ensure I felt like I was valued. Since I moved on from RMS, the school has implemented many new technologies inside and outside the classroom to make school life even more engaging for the students, such as SmartBoards, projectors, and Chromebooks. On the whole, I found that students were happy to be at RMS and understood how lucky we were to be getting an amazing education in an incredible environment surrounded by wonderful people!
Rowntree Montessori Schools (RMS) is not just any community based educational institution. This institution promotes well-being of all students that develop enhanced mental and physical health, a positive sense of self and belonging while nurturing the skills required by students to make positive choices. If your child is unhappy to miss school on a snow day, then you know he loves being at school. This is only possible due to the ongoing nurturing and development received daily. RMS prides itself on being an institution offering the best of 21st century learning practices. I know it must be difficult to maintain a unique, innovative, challenging yet fun environment for each student to reach their full potential and more. I had first hand experience witnessing students of the RMS working together to execute a reenactment of Disney's Lion King and the execution was impeccable. This demonstrates the level of work the teachers put in to help these students to realize their creative potential.
