School Reviews

1 year ago
Two of my children are at RiverRun (first year for one and third year for the other) and I cannot imagine them anywhere else. The oldest says he wants to stay there until college - LOL. The teachers, Amy and Debbie, are amazing educators, directresses of the Montessori philosophy, and human beings. The children are engaged and inspired, and they regularly practice practical life skills (cooking, taking public transportation, etc.) and philanthropy. Most families are very involved and it feels like a true community. We absolutely love it!
