Leading Independent School in Perth
Rockingham Montessori School is an alternative and independent school near the ocean in Rockingham, Western Australia. We are committed to Montessori philosophy and practice and dedicated to providing each of our students with exceptional care. Between our Infant Toddler Program (playgroup), Primary School and Adolescent Program (High School), we provide a genuine Montessori education experience for around 250 children and young people, from 12 months to 18 years of age.
Celebrating our ‘place’ and our history, each class at Rockingham Montessori School is named after ocean creatures. From the little penguins and sealions that live on or near Penguin Island, near the site of the original School, to the wobbegongs, jellyfish, starfish, turtles and dolphins regularly seen at our local Rockingham Beach, to the more fanciful, dramatic and unique seahorses, mantarays, orcas, narwhals, crocodilos and dugongs, our facilities pay tribute and remain true to our history.
