Riverbend Montessori School is a private school founded in 1976 by Carolyn Edgar. The school moved to its current location in First Colony, Sugar Land, Texas in 1984. Carolyn and her daughter Marcia Edgar own and operate the school together.
Montessori schools follow the education method developed by Maria Montessori, an Italian physician. She studied child development, observed children, and designed an environment in which children learn and grow in self-esteem.
In the Montessori class, all disciplines are integrated. Math and language skills, knowledge of scientific principles, geography, and history complement each other and are applied together to make each lesson meaningful and interrelated.
