The student body at Rowntree Montessori Schools is relatively small, which creates an environment where most of the students know all the others. In terms of the general atmosphere of the student body, there was always a sense of being part of a tight-knit community that shared similar values, such as responsibility, hard work, humility, and respect. These values were demonstrated and advocated for by the school leadership, and taken to heart by every student that attended the school. As a result of Rowntree being a private school, the socio-economic background of students tended to be upper-middle class or above, however the ethnic backgrounds were very diverse. On the whole, the student body got along very well with there being nearly non-existent instances of bullying and disrespectful behaviour.
The diversity in the student body at RMS is a great representation of various ethnicity, which makes this institution a great place for students to thrive. The interesting mix of students also fosters an extremely accepting and open environment for my child to remain himself as he is challenged and encouraged to do his best. I can’t really picture any student that doesn't fit in at RMS. I love the friendly House League competitions that helps all the students to collaborate and build comradery to achieve a desired goal. I think the students are given the opportunities to build lasting relationships with their peers as they traverse this particular season of their lives. My child fits in perfectly and find his own niche of friends with common likes as he grows in his own. As an institution, I believe the student body stands out with their common passions and growing intellectualism.
