Our Reviews Make Us So Proud!
Rowntree Montessori Schools (RMS) has been voted Brampton’s Best Private School by the Readers’ Choice Awards for the past eight years. In addition to this prestigious award, RMS has been awarded Brampton’s Top Private School by the Top Choice Award. While we hold these awards near and dear to our heart, it is the feedback that we receive from our current student’s families that means the most to us.
On March 12th, 2020, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, RMS received news from the Ontario Ministry of Education that all public schools in the province of Ontario would be closed. This was an unprecedented time for our students, their families, and our faculty and staff. But in true RMS spirit and fashion, we faced this challenge head-on with hard work, tenacity, and teamwork. Our teachers and staff worked tirelessly over the March break and delivered a state-of-art Remote Learning programme for all of our students from Pre-Kindergarten to grade 8. And the feedback we received from our students and their families was overwhelming, heartfelt and heartwarming.

Reviews from our Remote Learning Programme
Dear Ms. L:
More importantly now, we want to thank you so much for everything you’ve done since September and beyond! It’s sad to say goodbye to a teacher as amazing as you. You’ve worked so hard, and we know this is absolutely true because this year we had the unique opportunity to actually BE inside your “classroom”. This is such a gift!!
I wish I had the words to say all the wonderful things you deserve to hear. You are one incredible woman!! I’m amazed at your level of patience and understanding through all this.
As I packed up all the paperwork and projects our son has completed over the year, I’m blown away by how much you’ve taught and all they’ve learned. I’m grateful for each and every project, assignment, game, video, photo, etc. Our son’s level of comprehension and knowledge of things he’s learned this year is astounding.
Dear Mrs M., You are AMAZING!!!!! What a great session this morning!!!! Really, really appreciate your support. The time you took to review and then explain was just inspiring. J. was a little confused with the 2nd lesson but after your one-on-one, he feels GREAT! Feeling so good about remote schooling…..THANK YOU!
Dear Mrs. F., Thank you for the awesome work that you are doing with online teaching. In these uncertain and difficult times, you are not only providing education, but also giving the kids a sense of normalcy. We really appreciate all your efforts!
From a Prep-ONE student’s family:
We want to share a word of thanks to you both. What an amazing effort from you both to get the kids to continue their education given the situation. I am sure it is very hard and demanding, being remote. Our thanks, sincerely.
Hi everyone, I just wanted to say thanks so much for our first day of online learning! We appreciate all your work in keeping the kids engaged and your patience as we all figure out what will be our new reality for the next little while.
Hi Mr. H., Just a quick note to say thank you for yours and the Rowntree teacher’s dedication and leadership. Recognizing this likely wasn’t an easy task to pull together during the March Break, but feel very fortunate to be part of the Rowntree family. Both of our children have adjusted well to remote learning.
Good Morning Mr. H., Principal, I would like to acknowledge yourself and your team for working hard in the past few days to make this online learning possible for these students. It is a great initiative and I have no words to express how thankful as a parent I am for making this happen.
Nothing can replace the face-to-face interaction but this remote learning is fulfilling the needs of my child. As parents we appreciate making this Remote learning possible in today’s tough times.
Just wanted to let you know that the online learning system is going well for our son and us. I would like to commend you, the teachers and RMS for doing what you are doing and that is making sure kids get the learning and education they deserve. Well done to you and the RMS family for ensuring our kids continue their education and remain busy in a positive manner amid these unprecedented circumstances. Also, please know that we, as parents, are part of the RMS family and as such, do not hesitate to reach out to us if there is anything we can do to support RMS with these efforts.
Dear RMS Team,
This message is to congratulate RMS in being so meticulous in the planning and executing of the online learning programme for RMS students, in a timely manner. We were relieved and thankful for your effort. We appreciate and also of the other teachers who are working with the kids continuously. Hope all your families are staying safe and we really miss the school.This is many Grade 8s last year at the school and all the more reason for us to hope and pray they get to say a nice goodbye to their teachers and friends.
Hope this situation gets better and all the kids get back to their favorite hangout place-Rowntree!! Thanks again and take tonnes of care. Please convey our regards and wishes to other teachers too.
Dear Mrs. B.,
Just wanted to tell you that considering it’s only Day 2 of remote learning, you are doing so awesome! The meetings are well-structured, organized, and supporting docs are very clear for the kids. I want to thank you personally as I know all this was quickly drawn up, and I’m sure new to you as well. We really appreciate how well organized you are and how you’re able to keep the children engaged and in-check, virtually! This is really important in order to learn, and I am so happy with how great the classes are going.
Just wanted to extend a big thank you for your efforts. I know everyone was working extremely hard over March Break to make today happen and your efforts were not unnoticed. After being in my own work meetings the entire day, I felt very appreciative that my kids were “educated” today.
Hello Mr. H., Just wanted to give some feedback from the past 2 weeks of R. doing her school work from home. The program design is well organized and we are very impressed with hard work put into it by you and the teachers. Although R., is at home, she feels connected with Rowntree through the program. Being connected to Rowntree is very important to us as the kids know that their friends are still there and their teachers all care about them. We would like to thank and commend Ms. M. for all the work she is doing with the class daily.
We are proud to be a part of the RMS community and thank all the teachers, management, and administration for the work you do.
I am impressed with the online program. I was a bit skeptical at first but my son has done very well in adapting. It keeps him occupied most of the day and provides a structure which is critical. Of course, we are very pleased he is continuing to learn his curriculum while school is out. He has done really well and my son is excited to get online every day.
