The River School is an intimate, diverse community of children, teachers, parents and extended families. We readily welcome parents, grandparents, families and friends into the classroom. Whether itís cooking traditional holiday foods, presenting musical performances, or demonstrating careers and hobbies, our families enrich the teaching-learning experience tremendously. Parents also have the opportunity to become involved through the Montessori Center of Nyack & River School Parent Association.

In addition to the richness of our school community, our Nyack neighborhood provides us with wonderful historical, cultural, and geographic resources. We can walk to the banks of the Hudson River, tour the childhood home of artist Edward Hopper, and enjoy numerous off-campus activities either in town or just a short bus ride away!
