At Redwood Montessori Academy, we nurture each child's natural desire to learn, to explore, and to take part in the world.
Our classrooms offer a child-friendly environment with materials designed to reinforce the child's independence and encourage intellectual and emotional development.
Each child is treated as an individual and allowed to learn at his/her own pace.
Through this approach, each child masters essential personal, social, and academic skills.
Our students also develop self-confidence, inner peace, responsibility, and a love of learning.

School Reviews

  • Recommended September 13, 2013 - This school is fantastic! Our daughter attended Early Primary and Primary here, and then went to public school for kindergarten. We were so unimpressed with the public school system, we sent her back for elementary school this year. We feel good knowing that she''s in a challenging, caring environment, where she''s not a number, and where the teachers truly care about her. All the teachers are great - every single one of them. I highly recommend this school. - Posted by Parent
