How we see Unionville Montessori Private Schools
How Unionville Montessori Private Schools sees itself
"Offering an advanced curriculum with a gifted and talented education (GATE) program, UMS seeks to inspire, guide and challenge students. We incorporate emerging technologies through our STEM lab, 3D printers, laptop program, coding and robotics’ extensions. UMS prepares students to excel as digital learners while fostering talent in the fine arts and athletics — we also offer a wide breadth of enriching extracurriculars. Our highly specialized teachers provide individualized programming for all learning styles."
"At Unionville Montessori School, we differentiate ourselves through a strong focus on individual growth and achievement. No two students have the same extracurricular and educational experience at UMS — we emphasize choosing the mix between athletics, academics, and creative interests that works for each student. We also offer the chance to compete in specialized STEM extracurricular activities like math and coding competitions, science fairs, and robotics fairs."
"Our long-term community focus puts us ahead of our competition — we put every effort into fostering long term relationships with our staff, students, and their families. Our Preschool - Grade 8 structure facilitates the development of long-term connections between educators and students, and even students coming in later grades will see the difference that this strong community makes on their experience."
"An unexpected benefit of our school community is the breadth of experience that each student gains from being part of a diverse student body. Our students come from many different backgrounds, possess many unique skills and strengths, and learn from each other through this diversity. We choose to celebrate and foster every area and strength at UMS, because we believe that our diversity of experience, background, and interest brings something valuable."
"The extent to which technology and technological literacy is integrated into our programming is difficult to convey fully without experiencing it for oneself. We do not just focus on technology to gain an innovative reputation — we truly believe that technological literacy is a major skill of the future and want to prepare our students to feel comfortable and prepared in the new digital landscape. Every lesson plan from math to literature tries to integrate technology in an educational way"

Rosemin Remtulla, Director of Education
At Unionville Montessori School (UMS), we believe in providing a full and rich learning experience for all of our students.
Our Montessori roots are evident in our "Pre-Casa" and "Casa" programmes for students aged two to six years. These younger children are provided with the best of traditional Montessori education, which is proven to foster early academic development. They also experience more modern programmes in technology, such as coding, and other specialist disciplines which complement and support the Montessori base, providing our students with a truly outstanding early educational experience.
Our Elementary school programme further nurtures each child's potential by providing students with rigorous academics at a full grade level ahead in core academic subjects. Technology plays a key role in the facilitation of this – SmartBoard technology is available in every classroom. UMS students also participate in a fully supported iPad program, in which applications or apps are used to enhance learning. Students in grades 1 to 5 have access to iPads, and every student in grade 6 to 8 has an individual school-issued iPad that is pre-loaded with educational applications. Extra-curricular activities are also integral to the UMS experience. Students access our state-of-the-art auditorium for enriched and comprehensive arts education including vocal and instrumental music, visual art and drama. We also support a full athletics program and multiple opportunities for community service. However, the best part of UMS is still undoubtedly our community: a talented and dedicated faculty, supportive and committed parents and, of course, a very enthusiastic student body!
We thank you for your interest in UMS and invite you to contact us to arrange a tour and to meet some of the members of our very unique and special family.
