Our Academics

The Montessori method allows the child to explore and learn at their own pace with hands on and active lessons. It builds a solid academic foundation which allows the child to excel and remain at an advanced academic level. RPMA offers many opportunities for the child to expand knowledge of the world during the early years when they are motivated by spontaneous interest.
Practical Life

The practical life section is the most important area in the RPMA classroom. It is through these materials that the child develops the self-confidence, control and concentration essential for mastery of the other more advanced area of a Montessori class.


The language area contains many learning opportunities such as: learning the shapes and sounds of the letters, perfecting the fine motor skills for writing, vocabulary development, matching of words and pictures, silent reading, reading word lists, sentences, stories and learning parts of speech.


By using concrete materials during the early years, the child can learn the basic concepts of mathematics. Montessori education provides many materials to develop mathematical skills. Not only will the child be able to know quantities and systems but will understand the process of mathematical functions as well.

Science & Social Studies

Science and social studies are integral elements of the Montessori curriculum. Our program is designed to cultivate the child’s curiosity and determination to discover the truth for themselves. They learn how to observe patiently, analyze, and work at each problem. 


The sensorial materials help the child to become aware of detail. Each of the activities isolate one defining quality, such as color, weight, shape, texture, size, sound and smell. It is in this area that math concepts are first introduced and internalized.

Our Curriculum

At RPMA we strive to offer our students a comprehensive and all inclusive curriculum which offers the opportunity to learn using a hands on approach and develops the mind as well as the body. Aside from the lessons taught in the classroom, the children will also be taking Spanish classes three times a week. Our Art teacher introduces the concept of art history, art methods, art tools, and free artistic expression to our preschoolers twice per week. Children will also have use of our Computer Lab on a weekly basis where they will have access to the MECS Montessori inspired computer programs. Physical education is also very important and our PE program focuses on gross motor development of our young students.
