The 12-Acre Classroom!


Welcome to Cedar River Montessori!

Cedar River Montessori School fosters the innate curiosity of the child, presenting learning experiences that cultivate independent, creative thinkers who continuously build their understanding of themselves and the world around them.

Imagine a school where students learn as much from their experiences as they do from the teacher, where social and emotional growth are on equal par with academics, and where a child’s natural curiosity and intrinsic need to know are the most powerful motivators for learning. We invite you to explore our site and learn more about our school. It will make you wish you could be a student here!

Cedar River Montessori School is shaping the future by educating the next generation of connected, engaged, global thinkers who compassionately challenge the status quo.
