Rising Sun Community School aims to provide the optimal foundation for children to become lifelong learners. By tailoring the environment to meet the child's needs, and promoting learning through discovery in a peaceful atmosphere, we nurture the spirit in each child. Our goals include helping build skills needed for school and home, fostering positive and courteous social interaction, building self-confidence, utilizing a child's sensitive periods for learning, and providing an ordered environment where a child can be free to discover on their own with minimal intervention. We strive to foster creativity, curiosity, concentration, and the development of inner security and a positive attitude.
Our teachers are American Montessori Society certified, providing a seamless educational experience for ages 2 1/2 to 12 years old. Montessori is a time-tested and proven scientific method and educational philosophy. Research has shown again and again that it is truly the optimal way for children to learn. Montessori graduates are often independent, secure, out-of-the-box thinkers. Children at Rising Sun become a part of a happy, peaceful and engaged community of learners. The joy they experience at school extends to their homes, their communities, and, our hope - eventually, the world. We invest in them because they are "a hope and a promise for mankind"!
