Our Mission

Ruffing Montessori School strives to educate the whole child by providing education that addresses the academic, physical, emotional, and social development of children through Montessori principles that encourage the child's love of learning so they can reach their maximum potential. The success of our mission will be strengthened by the partnership between the child, school community and the family.

Welcome To Ruffing Montessori

Ruffing Montessori School dedicates itself to providing a quality Montessori education for children aged three through fourteen. The school, founded in 1959, has been a pioneer in the Montessori approach to education in Ohio and in the United States. Ruffing was the second Montessori school in the United States at both the pre-primary and elementary levels. In 1977, Ruffing became the first Montessori school in Ohio to be accredited by the state to operate through the eighth grade.
