RKMS has been educating children ages 6 months – 6 years on the North Shore for over 50 years. The school has received the American Montessori Society (AMS) accreditation three times, placing the school in a group of fewer than 10% of other Montessori schools nationwide.
Ronald Knox Montessori School (RKMS) is located in Wilmette, Illinois, just 19 miles north of downtown Chicago and nestled within 23 acres of open property in a quiet residential neighborhood. RKMS provides a nurturing, stimulating environment for children from six months through six years of age.
Since 1963, this parent-governed and professionally operated non-profit has dedicated itself to the Montessori educational philosophy. At the heart of our beliefs is the notion that the greatest learning occurs when children are allowed to choose their own path to development. At RKMS, children are encouraged to explore a world of activities under the watchful eyes of competent, Montessori-trained teachers. In this setting, children cultivate concentration, motivation and self-discipline along with a life-long love of learning, high self-esteem and respect for others and the world around them.
Ronald Knox Montessori School is committed to following the Montessori philosophy to create a nurturing, stimulating environment that promotes concentration, coordination, a sense of order, independence, grace and courtesy, and the life skills needed for each child to reach his or her full potential. Parents, faculty, and administrators form a community to foster a lifelong love of learning in our children and to promote respect for self, others, and the world around them.
