Ramalynn Academy

Our History

Ramalynn Montessori Academy was founded by Lynn Ramalingam in 1985.  The purpose was then, and still is today, to develop responsible world citizens.  Started by a grassroots request from a group of dedicated parents, Lynn Ramalingam blended concepts she learned in Montessori training with her personal belief system of integrity, compassion, tolerance and her boundless love towards all life on earth.  The result was a place where cultures come together.

We take pride in the reputation the school enjoys.  Over the years, Ramalynn Academy aspired to create a learning environment to compete with our community’s most prestigious private schools.  Accordingly, our students' remarkable record in State and National competitions reinforces that our students are among the very brightest.

The tradition of excellence at Ramalynn Academy continues.  We endeavor to build students with a sense of their place in the world’s community  through small size classes including children of mixed ages -- where students progress according to their abilities and strengths, rather than being categorized by age.  The Academy fosters self-confidence and leadership skills.  But, most of all, we are proud of the character and accomplishments exhibited by our graduates, all of whom remain connected to the Ramalynn Academy community that started them on their way.

Our Mission

To teach children respect, tolerance, and compassion to all life on Earth.

When people talk about what makes Ramalynn special, many mention our Montessori approach, our academic results, or our athletic program—but what really sets Ramalynn apart is our mission.

Ramalynn’s mission statement is simply, “To teach young children respect, tolerance, and compassion to all life on Earth.” By demonstrating how everything on Earth—from ant to elephant—is connected, we help students see their place in the ongoing story of our planet. When they recognize they can make a difference in the world, students understand the purpose of their studies, the importance of independent thinking, the value of diversity, and the demands they will face as world citizens.

As a result, our students work with self-discipline, internal motivation, and a joy of learning— that helps them become successful in the classroom and in life.

“In short, you’ve delivered what you promised—quality teaching, caring supervision, and an exceptional awareness of how much children are capable of. We looked long and critically for just the right place for our child, and we don’t regret our choice.”
