River Song School is a non-profit providing a nurturing, individually tailored educational experience for children ages 2–9 years old. The joy of learning inspires each child’s unique curiosity and creativity. Strong academic fundamentals are interwoven with art, music, movement and global curriculum to create a foundation for lifelong learning.

The school environment and Montessori educational philosophy cultivate self-confidence, critical thinking and compassion, as each child follows her or his own path and becomes part of a greater community.



Our Mission

River Song School exists to ensure every child has the opportunity to become a self-directed learner, capable of critical thinking and exercising compassion to themselves and the greater community around them.  Founded in the principles of the Montessori approach, River Song meets each child at their own unique point of development and provides an environment focused on academic engagement through the exploration of the arts, global and cultural awareness, peace and sustainability.  River Song is dedicated to exploring and developing progressive program opportunities to meet the needs of the whole child.
