Take a look at what some of our parents have to say about Renaissance Montessori Academy
As an educator I realize the importance of quality early childhood education. RMA is an exceptional school that prepares children to shine in academics and in life. My wife and I attribute RMA with creating an educational environment that has allowed our children to feel safe and realize the excellence within them. Our son is excelling at the Cherry Creek Challenge School.”

Renaissance Montessori Academy did wonders for my child. I was worried that my daughter would have trouble with learning. After experiencing RMA my daughter is off and running. She is in first grade, doing great, and knows that learning is fun! I attribute it all to RMA.”
Within the first two weeks at Renaissance Montessori, my son came to me and counted in Spanish. Within the first year my spirited, energetic child demonstrated better concentration while sitting still doing his work. My son is now a kindergartner and now reads books to me-without my asking! The teachers at Renaissance Montessori blend the unique Montessori methodology, years of teaching experience, and added warmth and caring to which our children respond so positively. It’s a wonderful learning environment for our kids.”
My daughter attended Renaissance Montessori Academy for two years of preschool. She’s now in first grade and reads at a third-grade level. I attribute much of her academic success to the outstanding instruction she received at Renaissance.”

Google Founders Talk Montessori
Did you know the two founders of GOOGLE credit their success to their Montessori Pre-School? Listen to this video where they speak about how they met, became friends and built a billion dollar corporation.
We both went to montessori school and i think it was part of that training, not following rules and orders and being self motivated questioning what’s going on in the world, doing things a bit differently.
