Mission & Vision


The Grove School is a public Montessori community that guides adolescents in their work of self-construction, as they become engaged and respectful world citizens.

The Grove School relies on the framework for adolescent education defined by Maria Montessori. At the core of her vision is the expectation that students will “pass from one stage of independence to a higher [one], by means of their own activity, through their own effort or will.” The Grove School’s unique, rich, safe, challenging, relevant and comprehensive program is valued as a vital part of Redlands heritage and legacy. All members of our community model respect and clear communication in order to foster collaboration and cooperation.

A Grove student will be the architect of her own future; learning from peers and teachers how to live an authentic life beyond perceived boundaries.
