Rowntree Montessori Schools is the largest and longest serving Montessori school in Brampton having been registered with the Ontario Ministry of Education since 1969. Rowntree Montessori School was founded in 1969 with 13 students in the basement of a church in Bramalea. A few years later, this independent private school moved to the former Bramalea campus.
In 1988, Mr. Joe Essaye took over Rowntree Montessori School. Consequently, a complete overhaul of the educational programmes was immediately implemented. Under the new management, Rowntree Montessori School grew from 37 students in June 1988 to 120 in December 1992. As a result of the overwhelming increase in the demand for its services, a new RMS campus was inaugurated its Downtown Brampton in January 1993. This campus grew rapidly, and today has an enrollment of approximately 100 students.
In September 1997, Rowntree Montessori Schools opened its Central Park Drive campus. This campus initially served as an elementary school which housed an average of 120 students from Grade 1 to Grade 8. Presently, this facility serves as one the RMS preparatory campuses.
Rowntree Montessori Schools’ most significant expansion took place in the fall of 2002 when it opened its largest campus to date, the Rowntree Montessori Schools Academy. The Academy campus welcomes students from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 8. Its superb facilities include Science and Computer laboratories, a Music and Arts studio, a Library, and a large Gymnasium with a stage. All of these provide everything that is needed to meet the educational needs of all its students.
Rowntree Montessori Schools is a GOLD member of the Ontario Federation of Independent Schools (OFIS).
