About MSR

Welcome from the Head of School

We Would Love to Meet You!

Thank you for visiting Montessori School of Ruston website! We always enjoy sharing information about our school and Montessori education with our community.
We hope you find the information you are looking for and invite you to stop by in person when you have time. Our school has been serving the Ruston community for 34 years. We maintain local (Louisiana Montessori Association) accreditation and national (American Montessori Society) pathways recognition as a full member Montessori school working towards full AMS accreditation as an educational institution for Toddler through Eighth grade. Our current enrollment is 100 plus students and more than 20 faculty and staff and we continue to grow!

For more than 100 years, Montessori has been thriving around the globe. Current research validates the effectiveness of the Montessori Method over time and several key elements of the approach meet the educational needs of our time. These include a strong sense of self, the ability to connect with others, to work collaboratively and creatively, and the discipline to work independently. At MSR we believe the early years (birth through age 6) are a critical time to set a strong foundation for who a child will become and the role she or he will play in the future. Our Montessori programs start at age 15 months and continue through age 15 years (8th grade).

At our school, we approach the child as a seed full of everything needed to become the adult they will become. Our task is to "plant" them in an environment that will support them in reaching their full potential! Our Montessori certified staff has a unique and in depth understanding of the developmental needs of children and is ready and equipped to support and nurture their development in all areas: physical, intellectual, spiritual and social.

We also understand the need to create a community which supports parents in their role in their child's development. Choosing Montessori School of Ruston connects you to a community of like-minded parents intentionally raising children who will use their talents and education to bring goodness to our world. If what you see and read here resonates with your values then I invite you to come and visit us to find out more about our amazing school!
