MIR is a Montessori school serving children ages 18 months through 6th grade from Redlands, California and surrounding communities.
We were founded in 1976 by parents who wanted a school that would respect and encourage each child's inherent curiosity, abilities, and interests. We firmly believe in protecting and nurturing children's natural gifts while giving them a solid academic foundation.
MIR is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation funded by tuition, fees, donations, and grants. Read the 2011-2012 MIR Annual Report.
We follow the Montessori tradition of fostering ethnic, economic, and intellectual diversity. Our students and staff come from many different countries and many walks of life. The school is a true community where everyone is part of an extended "family" that cares deeply for one another and for the broader community.
