    I chose the Rancho Viejo Montessori after looking at a lot of local pre-schools in the area both monterssori and not. The attitude of the school and the teachers and staff is what won me over among the other usal things like the academic setup and the all-round focus on the children as individuals. both my kids have now been going here for 2 years and the teachers have been a partner in their growth and education.

    The entire staff at Rancho Viejo recognize each child as awesome and want to provide an environment that provides tools to excel in academics as well as skills that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives (respect of others animals how to support each other acknowledging even the smallest accomplishments).

    My 2 children love RVMS!! I had considered moving my older child to the public school in our neighborhood but knew that they would be lost due to large class size. Here my child is one of 11 in the kindergarten class far better than 1 of 33!! Teaching staff are wonderful loving and knowledgeable.

    The Rancho Viejo School is a Montessori school for ages 2 (Pre-School) - Middle School level. My daughter has been attending since she was 2. She and her classmates learned excellent verbal skills then and they have never turned back. Now in Lower Elemtary she participates in many activities including the school garden and mentoring the younger children.
