Admission : Beyond Ruffing

Navigation »

Being an alumnus of a Montessori school places you in very good company. Larry Page and Sergey Brin (founders of Google), Jeff Bezos (founder of Amazon), Jimmy Wales (founder of Wikipedia), and Yo-Yo Ma (acclaimed cellist) all have something in common – a Montessori education. When meeting Ruffing alumni, it is always impressive to note the diversity in interests, fields of study and careers. From finance to architecture, education, law, music, medicine and social justice work, Ruffing alumni realize the full extent of their potential in all that they do. Even though their journeys have taken them far beyond the stone wall, Ruffing graduates are intrinsically connected by their shared Ruffing experience, emerging as young adults ready to take on the world.
