Welcome to Six Rivers Montessori

Our Vision

Our broadest vision is of a world that lives in peace, and a world community based on interdependence and respect for all life and all people. Our vision for our school is a Montessori school community of supportive parents, dedicated teachers and staff, and joyful learners.

Our Mission

Our mission is to nurture students’ character, compassion, respect and curiosity; to cultivate their means to learn, to invent, and participate fully and joyfully in life independently and collaboratively; to sustain a quality Montessori holistic classroom environment within a farm-based learning community; to encourage a deep sense of interdependence and responsibility as caring, global citizens and stewards of the earth.


Non-Profit Status!

We are now a federally recognized 501 c3 non-profit organization! This means we are exempt from most federal and state taxes and can receive tax-deductible donations.

SRM would like to recognize Autumn Feral and Aaron Weiss for their ongoing attention to the non-profit application process. It was a path covered with bureaucratic hoops and both Autumn and Aaron graciously and intelligently maneuvered our organization through them. Excellent work!

Looking Forward

We are currently planning a slew of field trips for the Winter/Spring and will be announcing those as we get details finalized. There will be more programs at Patrick’s Point and we are planning trips focused around waterways and our usage of water in Humboldt – an even more relevant topic with our current drought conditions.

Fall Activities

It’s been a great week book-ended by a fantastic Opera performance with some of our students and a sweet day kayaking on the river for the Upper Elementary students. A huge amount of thanks to Teresa for organizing and directing the students in the Opera and to Dave Feral for helping make the river trip happen.
