Ridgeline Montessori Public Charter School

The RCO would like to invite all Ridgeline families to an end of year picnic to be held on the south field on May 31st from 5:30-7:00 pm. This is a “bring your own” and “leave no trace” event - families should bring their own food (no potluck) and chairs/blankets as well as take all their own trash, etc. We will also have lawn games to enjoy together, if you would like to bring a lawn game to play, sign up here -

We look forward to seeing everyone!

8th grade graduation is just around the corner on Tuesday, June 14th at 6 pm! Please help the commencement planners estimate attendance by filling out this form so that we can make sure to have enough ice cream and chairs! Please make sure not to submit duplicate RSVPs by coordinating with family. Thanks!

Due to the pandemic, families will not have the opportunity to tour the classrooms as part of our lottery information sessions. Check out these Montessori lesson videos for a peek into the classroom experience.

“Our aim is not only to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core.”

—Maria Montessori
