Authentic for every child.

Our Mission

Inspiring our children to be leaders, innovators and stewards of our world.

Vision Statement

Ronald Knox Montessori School is committed to following the Montessori philosophy to create a nurturing, stimulating environment that promotes concentration, coordination, a sense of order, independence, grace and courtesy, and the life skills needed for each child to reach his or her full potential. Parents, faculty, and administrators form a community to foster a lifelong love of learning in our children and to promote respect for self, others, and the world around them.
