Established in 1987 with 17 students and a mission to "educate the whole child," May River Montessori continues in these footprints today. From humble beginnings and many hours of love, talent and work, the school has continuously operated at maximum enrollment. The school currently educated 160 full-time students from 24 months old through 6th grade.

The school has undergone 3 expansions and a move to its permanent location on Calhoun Street in order to accommodate the growing desire for education that focuses on children.
