Planning Your Visit

Planning Your Visit To OSMS

We encourage you to come by to see the school and our classrooms for yourself.
Here are a few suggestions that will help you get the most from your visit.

Make An Appointment

Before you stop by, please call (401) 434-6913 to schedule an appointment.
Schedule A Tour

 Read Up On Montessori

Although not required, having a little knowledge about the Montessori classroom and philosophy before you arrive will help you understand what you see during your visit. We recommend the following article, The Characteristics of an Authentic Montessori School, as a good starting place. You’ll find other resources on the About Montessori page.

Expect Quiet Observation

During tours and observations we try not to disrupt the classroom, teachers, and students. Expect to observe the class silently with little or no interaction with the teacher or students. Your tour guide will answer your questions after you’ve stepped back into the hallway.

 Parent Tours

Although children are welcome to accompany their parents during our Open Houses, we ask that they do not come along for tours or classroom observations in the interest of keeping disruption and distraction to a minimum. Children have ample opportunity to see the school during their pre-admission visit and the enrolled family open house.

What a wonderful school. Our oldest son went through the primary program and we saw tremendous growth and amazing accomplishments from him over the years. Expect the best from this school and your child. You will be rewarded with a terrific outcome!
