Raritan Valley Montessori Academy
- Celebrating 50 years, we are a community of students, parents and faculty defined by and committed to the four pillars of our mission; excellence, universal values, global understanding and service to others.
- Academic preparation is not our only goal. We develop social skills, emotional growth, global citizenship and responsibility and physical coordination.
- We encourage the development of self-esteem, self-motivation, enthusiasm for learning, and being closely bonded to our community and the world. It is our committment that our students respect themselves, each other and the environment.
- This philosophy permeates our teaching of children from toddlers through 6th grade.
