School Description:

Ruffing Montessori School, located in Rocky River, Ohio, is dedicated to providing a quality Montessori education for children ages three through fourteen. In a Montessori school, children’s joy of learning is accompanied by hard work, self-discipline, and integrity. We identify opportunities which focus on the needs of children at each stage of development. We also provide a safe environment where children can experience discovery, community, affirmation, love, and support.

At Ruffing, we help our students gain knowledge, but more importantly we help them believe in themselves, believe in others, and love learning. We do not think of our role as teachers as just being about subject matter but also about getting to know each of our students, how they learn, what they want to learn, and how they feel.

The school, founded in 1959, has been a pioneer in the Montessori Method of education. Ruffing was the second Montessori school in the United States at both the primary and elementary levels.  In 1977, Ruffing became the first Montessori school in Ohio to be accredited by the state to operate through eighth grade.
