Montessori Program

During the 2016-2017 school year, RUSD introduced a Montessori Program for 3 and 4-year-olds.  5-year-olds will begin attending during the 2017-2018 school year.  Montessori education emphasizes independence and respect for a child’s naturally developing cognitive, physical and social skills in multi-age classrooms.  Only 5-year-olds with previous Montessori experience are eligible for the program.  The Montessori Program is located in the early learning wing of Goodland Elementary School (4800 Graceland Blvd.). Transportation will be provided for 4 and 5 year olds who live more than two miles from Goodland Elementary School.
