Ramalynn Montessori Academy

At Ramalynn Montessori Academy, we believe that the core of successful teaching is by example"a lesson without words.
Our goal is to help each child to develop as a complete human being, adaptable to changes in time, place and culture.
At the same time, we foster each child's intelligence and courage to envision a better world and to cause transformation.
The Montessori philosophy lets children develop according to their individual interests and abilities, rather than limiting them to a grade level.
Ramalynn maintains a student-teacher ratio of no more than 15 students for every teacher.
This high standard allows our staff to focus on each child; no students slip through the cracks or just get by at Ramalynn.
We believe that with the right guidance, every child has the ability to reach his or her full potential.

School Reviews

Our son is just entering his 7th year at Ramalynn. He started as a preschooler, and is now going into 5th grade. We could not be happier with the education he's received at Ramalynn. He's several grades above average in almost all of his academic subjects, but Ramalynn's strengths are so much more than academic. Their sports program is far superior to anything we''ve ever seen, with a focus on excellent coaching and strategic understanding of the sports. The fine arts program is also far above average. Overall, we can not recommend Ramalynn enough.
