Mission & Philosophy


The Riverbend School is a collaborative Montessori environment that develops self-motivated, independent learners by integrating academic excellence and a respectful social community that results in confidence and lifelong achievement.


At Riverbend, our innovative approach encourages students to explore their talents with confidence, strive for achievement and discover new ways of thinking, all in an environment founded on respect and collaboration.

We engage our students in:
  • An academically challenging curriculum
  • Superior extracurricular programs
  • Critical thinking and problem solving
  • Team building
  • Small classes

The Montessori philosophy, combined with the small student-to-teacher ratio allow for flexibility and customization in our curriculum. Our teachers are trained to recognize and bring out the best in every child. We prepare self-assured learners with highly developed inner discipline who become responsible participants in their education, able to set their own compass for lives of meaning, purposeful achievement, and happiness.
