Rock Prairie Montessori School (RPMS) is a non-profit school that began in September 1994 through the efforts of several parents seeking an alternative education for their children. Rock Prairie Montessori’s program purpose is to operate a child centered school for children in accordance with the Montessori Method to encourage the development of every child to his or her maximum potential and to aid parents/guardians in the education of the child by involving them in the school. Originally a preschool, the school has added a toddler class (18-23 months), elementary programming and middle school through 8th grade.
Located on 10 acres of prairie and woods, RPMS offers beautiful views inside and outside the classroom with many opportunities for outdoor leaning. We also offer Spanish education to children as young as 3 years of age, peace education and opportunities for parents involvement in our school community.
Students come from as far north as Madison as as far south as Rockford, IL to become part of our community. We welcome the opportunity to give tours and answer questions about our school and the Montessori method.
Rock Prairie Montessori School is conveniently located off I-90 on the northeast side of Janesville, just west of the intersection of Harmony Townhall Rd and Rotamer Rd.
