At Quest, we recognize our students as individuals, as well as learners. We serve the needs of the whole child as we strive to ensure each student is academically motivated, artistically creative, physically active and emotionally supported. The social and emotional growth of students and their cognitive/intellectual growth, are thoughtfully integrated into their education.
Our goal is to provide a safe, caring and peaceful environment which will prepare students of diverse backgrounds to pursue that which inspires them. Montessori education encourages freedom with responsibility. Students are active participants in their learning and make important decisions about how that learning is conducted. Students progress at a pace that is challenging but appropriate to their own needs. Our multi-age classrooms provide flexibility and opportunities for leadership, mentoring and deep collaboration.
Quest currently serves 115 students from eighteen months to eighth grade. As an authentic Montessori School, Quest provides children and young adolescents an interesting, prepared environment; inspirational educators; open doors and open communication; and a sense of belonging.
At Quest, we employ the Montessori curriculum to evoke children’s love of learning by engaging their natural interests and addressing the needs of the whole child. Montessori educators are specially trained and certified to engage and address the whole child and to facilitate a collaborative learning community in which students are valued and active members.
Founded in 2001, Quest emerged from a community of parents whose generosity and support provided us with our first home, a library with thousands of books, computers, initial financial support and countless other gifts of kindness, materials, muscle and mind. Today, we are fortunate to have many of the founding parents still involved in our community and to have a very active and supportive PTO made of current parents. Through this dedication and support, Quest Montessori now resides in a beautiful, state-of-the-art new building in Narragansett, RI on Boston Neck Road. With the opening of our new school facility, Quest has established itself as the only toddler-eighth grade authentic Montessori school in Southern New England.
Quest Montessori School is a non-denominational, non-profit (501 c (3)) school.
