Welcome to the Richmond Hill Montessori School

Located in Richmond Hill, Ontario and serving the Greater Toronto Area since 1986

RHMS prides itself on being a leading Montessori school for almost thirty years. Over our three decades of service, we have educated thousands of children in our positive and progressive learning environment. Our methods empower children to form their own identity, and strive with ambition towards the goals that they choose. The foundation that our private school provides gives children the tools to succeed at higher levels of education and beyond.


Innovative Curriculum

We use the latest research to craft our curriculum, ensuring that all students are not only up-to-date, but that they are also getting the best chance to develop in the areas that they are best at. We don’t want to put students in a box, as this stifles creativity and development. Private Schools and their curriculum, like the world, must evolve in order to insure they become one of the leading Private Educational Institutions. Our Private School is committed to remaining current and preparing its students to participate fully and effectively in today's society.



Although there are definitely limits set in our classrooms, we allow much more freedom than most contemporary educational institutions. We focus on allowing students the freedom of movement around the class, freedom of interaction, and the freedom to use materials the way that they want to so that they can develop their own unique set of skills naturally.


Smaller Classrooms

The exclusivity of our school ensures that you will have small classroom sizes, and that your child will be given the attention that they deserve. With teams of trained and dedicated teachers, your child will be given the best chance to succeed.


Our Discovery Model

We allow students to work with materials and figure out concepts for themselves first rather than always teach them by direct instruction. Instead of giving orders, we allow the students to become independent, free and constructive thinkers.

Calendar & News

A Friendly Environment

We want to be an extension of the student’s home. We provide a fun and safe environment for children to learn in. We care for and support each pupil, and encourage them to develop a love for learning. We interact as a community of teachers, students, and parents to help your child find the best path to success. Our dedication extends far beyond school hours, and provides supervision before and after the school day. We want to be the best elementary school in the country, and we know that working parents need the peace of mind that comes with knowing that their children are cared for.
