About Ruffing : Welcome


Navigation »

As Dr. Maria Montessori said, “education as an aid to life should be a source of joy.” At Ruffing Montessori School, we embrace this sentiment as a core value.

We are the second oldest Montessori school in the United States, reflecting a legacy of success educating children in the Montessori tradition for over 50 years. Our Whole Child philosophy puts the child at the center and integrates a comprehensive learning environment promoting life-long learning.

We invite you to discover Ruffing, a renowned and nationally recognized Montessori school, with highly trained and experienced faculty, carefully prepared learning environments appointed with beautiful wooden Montessori materials, state-of-the-art science labs, robust enrichment offerings, classroom gardens, and a vibrant parent community. Ruffing’s recently redeveloped campus consciously incorporates high performance “green” building concepts and is the first school in Northeast Ohio to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. A Ruffing education is, by all accounts, a tremendous experience, and our students emerge as socially responsible, intellectually curious and high academic achievers in their high schools, colleges and beyond.
