Who is Ronald Knox


Ronald Knox Montessori School was founded in 1963 by a group of parents who saw the need for a Montessori program on the North Shore of Chicago. The Sisters of Christian Charity graciously donated space, and several of the sisters have served as Directresses and members of the Board.

The school was named for Ronald Knox, an English author and biblical scholar highly regarded for his brilliant intellect, religious tolerance and devotion to children.

From the beginning, RKMS has followed an authentic Montessori philosophy. The Directresses are trained in the Montessori method, and the curriculum materials are consistent with the Montessori principles of early childhood education.
