What is Montessori?
The Montessori method, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori over 100 years ago, is a child-centered approach that is student led, but teacher guided. It allows the student room to follow their curiosity, which frees them to progress at their own pace. Paired with warm, nurturing teachers, multi-age classrooms, and peer to peer mentorship, Montessori students often excel far beyond traditional expectations.

My child doesn't like to sit in a desk. Will your classroom setup work well for them?
Absolutely! Our Montessori classrooms do not have desks, rather small tables, floor space, etc. that allow the child to move and sit freely while they learn. Walking into a Montessori classroom, you'll often see one student at a table, a group of students working on mats on the floor, and another student sitting in a reading corner.
Do you provide transportation?
We do not provide transportation. All families at Ramalynn Academy are driven to and from school by their parents and/or family members.
Do you provide meals?
We do not provide meals. Each student should come to school each day with a lunch packed in an insulated lunch box, a morning, and an afternoon snack.
