Rising Star Montessori, Inc. began its quest of touching the lives of children in August 2001. We started our school with one Primary class consisting of 16 students. Within one year, the school added an Elementary class and moved to a Historical house in the heart of Fayetteville, Georgia. This 1920’s house is located on two acres of wooded land. This land provides the children with many opportunities to run and explore God’s nature. There are numerous activities for the children such as gardening, nature walks, basketball, football, and soccer. To meet the demands of its continuing growth, Rising Star completed an addition in 2005 which houses the Junior Elementary program. In 2006, Rising Star Montessori purchased adjoining land which houses the Senior Elementary program. This upcoming school year, 2015, Rising Star will open a Toddler class to add to their one Primary class, one Junior and one Senior Elementary class. The Toddler classroom will consists of a teacher/child ratio of 1/6. All other classrooms consists of a teacher/child ratio of 1/10 or less.
Nancy Dutton and Debbie Montgomery, owners and certified Montessori teachers, along with nine other staff members, dedicate their lives to giving quality education to children in a Christian Montessori environment.
