Our Programs

Rochester Montessori School (RMS) serves over 220 students from 18 months through 9th grade. 

Montessori education, carried out faithfully at RMS, values the development of the whole child. Our students gain executive function, independence, critical thinking, leadership and collaborative skills, and self-confidence.

Starting in grade 6, we introduce the International Baccalaureate (IB) framework. The IB is highly complementary to the Montessori method. It is designed to cultivate well-rounded individuals capable of meeting today’s challenges with optimism and an open mindset.

Our classrooms follow guidelines for American Montessori Society (AMS) and Association Montessori International (AMI). RMS is also an authorized International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IB MYP) grades 6-9. 

In addition to a regular academic schedule, RMS offers before- and after-school care and activities as well as summer programs.
