Welcome to
The Lillian and Betty Ratner School

The Lillian and Betty Ratner School is dedicated to meeting the individual learning needs of a richly diverse population of students, fostering in them respect, creativity and a life-long love of learning. Through its Montessori Pre-Primary, and Montessori influenced Primary and Middle School programs, Ratner students are prepared for the challenges of rigorous higher education and for productive global citizenship. The Ratner School’s innovative and nurturing environment creates a community of learners where Each Child Thrives.

At the Ratner School, we offer and provide:

  • Individualized attention that allows students who have different learning styles and abilities to accelerate their learning or spend extra time in an area of challenge in what feels like a “Classroom of 1”
  • Nurturing, caring teachers who create a safe, home-like learning environment
  • Broad acceptance of students by their peers, who have the support to take risks, develop as individuals, and become self-confident
  • A diversity of ethnicity, religions, cultures, and socio-economics that drives our vision of being an inclusive community of global thinkers
