17 Parent Reviews for Richmond Montessori School

Out of touch administration, weak academics at the elementary level and not as Montessori as they claim. The school is fine at the preschool level, but we have not been impressed by the elementary curriculum. There is not enough emphasis on basic math skills, no reading or writing curriculum, and the ...  Read more

We have been blown away with the excellence at RMS. The authentic Montessori taught by all accredited teachers is refreshing. Graduates of RMS walk away fully prepared to handle the world and are well on their way to being poised young adults.

Richmond Montessori school is honestly the best school I have gone to everyone is so nice. I would defiantly recommend this school to someone else.

The Richmond Montessori School (RMS) provides a terrific alternative in Richmond's private school arena. The Montessori curriculum nurtures confident, independent learners who go on to consistently do well beyond 8th grade. I have been impressed with the graduates from this school, who seem far more ...  Read more

I have had three children go through RMS. The academics are superb, and I feel that the kindergarten and elementary levels are the best kept secret in town!

Our son is about to start his second year at RMS and has simply thrived at the school. The teachers are phenomonal, and we love being a part of this community. I can't imagine a better place for our child.

My son is a primary one student and he has flourished mentally and physically here. The teachers here really do want the best for your child. The parents and overall community of this school is great. Being new to Richmond, I found the parents and staff very welcoming and understanding. If you are ...  Read more

We've really had a successful year so far. Teachers are involved and frequently communicate. Parental involvement is high. Students are caring and a respect for the child and their learning preferences are highly regarded. Only wish they had more afterschool activities/clubs which were not so costly.
