SPONSORED POST: Riverbend School in beautiful South Natick is a toddler through grade 8 co-ed Independent Day School that combines the best practices of a Montessori education such as an emphasis on connected learning throughout the curriculum. along with active engagement through today’s technologies. Students in our multi-aged classrooms benefit from the Montessori way of following the child. Using this philosophy, our highly educated Montessori-certified faculty (over 45% of whom hold advanced degrees) nurture and guide children as members of a diverse, inclusive community of learners.
Our students enjoy low teacher-to-child ratios of 4.5:1 for our toddlers; 9:1 for primary and Ks; and 10:1 for 1st through 8th grades. At Riverbend, children become active participants in their own education in our structured classroom environment. Riverbend children learn indoors in groups and individually as well as outdoors on our five-acre lot, which includes two full playground and garden plots for each classroom, along with a newly constructed gaga pit. Their campus is their home base, a jumping-off point as students explore the wider world.
From science classes and recreational outings at Elm Bank Reservation, hiking and nature studies at Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary, local historic site visits such as to the Eliot Church (founded in 1651), and the Bacon Free Library (opened in 1881), our students are hands-on, active learners whose curiosity is sparked, never quashed, by their daily classroom work.
Come for a tour and see first-hand what’s happening at Riverbend School’s amazing Charles River campus with its state-of-the-art facilities. Let us show you why Montessori is such an effective educational philosophy for promoting academic excellence, creativity, problem-solving skills, and an endless capacity for compassion and care.
