On April 20th, 2021 The Three Rivers Montessori School Board approved adding an additional 26 Kindergarten seats and an additional 4 first grade seats for the 2021-2022 school year.
While TRM is committed to providing a Montessori preschool experience for the Elk River community, doing so at this time would mean the potential for financial strain on our new school. Therefore, TRM will not be enrolling preschool students for the 2021-2022 school year.
The decision was made after much deliberation following the lottery for admissions in March, 2021. The TRM School Board unanimously believes the decision will be in the best interest of the school as we approach our second year of operation.
The addition of a Montessori preschool community is still strongly supported in the long-term plan by the board and school administration.
Three Rivers Montessori is grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve the Elk River community and for your continued support.
Three Rivers Montessori serves Elk River, Rogers, Zimmerman, Otsego, and the surrounding Minnesota areas. It is a public tuition-free elementary school for students and parents interested in an authentic Montessori school experience.
What Is Montessori?
Montessori is based on the philosophy of education and human development. We see the child as a motivated participant in their education, learning through self-instigated actions on the environment. Because of this belief, we emphasize hands on learning, individualized lessons, and cooperative social interactions. Our curriculum is comprised of practical life, language, and mathematics. Geography, history, science, art, music, literature, and physical education are also included.
We'd love to get to know you and have you as part of our volunteer team.
Let us know if you'd like to be involved.
