Note From Our Principal
Welcome to River's Edge Montessori Elementary!
The Montessori School in the Dayton Public School District that is truly committed to its Montessori roots of teaching and learning! Montessori education fosters a life-long passion for learning. Scientifically researched by Dr. Maria Montessori, physician, educator, and philosopher, the Montessori hands-on education is a tradition in the United States for over 100 years.
From a young age, the Montessori method of education encourages students to ask questions, solve problems, and think critically about their answers. It builds self-sufficient students who have a natural ability to work in teams as a contributing member or as a leader. It trains students to recognize their abilities and highlight their strengths.
The Montessori community of learners are nurtured to be compassionate, supportive, and accepting of all kinds of diversity. Montessori students are well equipped to be successful and thrive as confident and capable members of society. We look forward to being a part of your children's educational journey -- one that will positively impact their skills for life as a global citizen!
