Classes are being held in-person at

The Earth School! 


We are currently conducting in-person classes following strict national and international biosafety standards. The Earth School is proud to be the first international school in the world to achieve GBAC STAR™ facility accreditation from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) to prevent and respond to outbreaks. Learn more about our efforts to enhance cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention protocols. 


We also have a contingency plan that allows the school to switch quickly to online learning if required by the Government of Rwanda as a temporary preventative measure. Our teachers would then use SeeSaw, an online learning platform to support students at home. We would have synchronous online Circle Times twice daily so children can continue interacting with their teachers and friends. 

To continue implementing our biosafety measures, our intake ensures that we maintain small groups. Applications for new enrollment are open now and filling quickly on a first-come-first-served basis. If you would like to apply for a place in the program for your child, you can use the button below. If you have any questions or would like to program a visit to our school, you are welcome to contact us directly at:

Welcome to your Child's New School

Child-Centered Education


Welcome to The Earth School, the International Montessori School of Rwanda!

We love children, and firmly believe that their education and holistic development as confident, creative, curious, and motivated individuals is the most important thing we can do for them. Our commitment is to provide a creative, experiential, and transformative education, guiding our young learners through a journey of self-discovery, growth, and identification of their strengths and interests.


We provide an environment that acknowledges each student's academic and social, as well as emotional and physical needs, and seamlessly integrates them into the learning process. This environment allows students to feel confident and guides them towards a deeper understanding of their purpose in life.

Our program is small enough to guarantee truly individualized attention, yet big enough to provide world-class education. The Earth School is an accredited member of the International Schools Association (ISA). Based in Geneva, Switzerland, ISA is the most senior organization in the world of international education and the first educational non-governmental organization to be granted consultative status at UNESCO. 


A creative, experiential, and transformative education that guides the child through a journey of self-discovery, growth, and a deeper understanding of their purpose in life.


The Earth School provides a carefully prepared learning environment that acknowledges the child's intellectual, physical, social, and emotional needs during critical planes of development. This environment helps the child develop essential life skills and fosters lifelong independent learning.

Our Core Values

What We Stand For

1.     Follow the Child

We trust each child’s ability to develop to his/her full potential. The whole of the school community and physical environment is set up to promote a child-centered approach that facilitates the child’s own development process.


2.     Whole Child Development

We equally value all aspects of the child’s development, including their intellectual, social, emotional, and physical needs.


3.     Character Building

We believe childhood is the best time in life to develop strength of character, passion for life, and compassion for ourselves and for others, as well as a love of learning.


4.     One Earth Community

We encourage the development of a sense of interconnectedness, belonging, respect, and responsibility by the individual towards the whole of life on Earth.


5.     A Sense of Wonder and Appreciation in a World of Possibilities 

We value, protect and nurture the child’s innate sense of curiosity, discovery, wonder, and appreciation for the world so that they remain lifelong learners.


6.     Awareness and Mindfulness

We are aware that children learn by example and of the role that adults play as models of the values and behaviors that children develop. We strive to act mindfully at all time.
