Reston Montessori School
Established in 1986, Reston Montessori School is a private, co-educational school for children from 3 months through 6th grade.
Reston Montessori School was established in 1986. It is an American Montessori Society Full Member school. The school grew from one primary classroom to serving students from age 3 months to 12 years. As the oldest Montessori school in Reston serves the Reston community and much of its surrounding area.
The founder of Reston, Robert E. Simon was a visitor to the school and a firm believer in the Montessori philosophy. He said “I’m particularly concerned with our country’s education policy, because there’s nothing right about it. It makes no sense to talk about white, black, urban, suburban, poor, or rich, because in each one of those categories, you’ll find all kinds of different skills and abilities. So, we should be focusing on the individual. Yet we put all these kids in the same grade based on age alone, and that’s crazy. A third of them are bored because the class is going too slow; a third of them don’t know what’s happening at all; and a third find that the class is just right. We should be focusing on individual IQs, and they should be learning what they enjoy and what they do best. The Montessori method is the closest to that.”
RMS has one Infant classroom (3 months to 18 months), three Pre-Primary classrooms (18 months to 3 years), four Primary classrooms ( 3 years to 6 years), one Lower Elementary classroom ( 6 years to 9 years) and one Upper Elementary classroom (9 years to 12years).

“A child’s work,” wrote Maria Montessori, “is to create the man he will become. An adult works to perfect his environment, but a child works to perfect himself.” So Dr. Montessori developed an education that would aid the child in his work.
