Donor Honor Roll

Thank you for Making a Difference!

The motto “Make a Difference” represents the commitment of all our community in providing excellence in education and support for all students. Because there is no “one size fits all approach” to education, your gift supports many inspiring parts of our learning community. Important areas that we are focusing on this year to continue the growth of our Montessori Curriculum and overall programming at Ratner Montessori School include:


  • Diversity/Peace Program
  • Visual Arts
  • Music Program
  • Physical Education/Athletics
  • Jewish Studies
  • Science and STEM
  • COVID Response  


Most importantly, the Fund for Creative Learning helps us stay true to our mission to empower students to find joy in learning and to become their best selves.
