I want to personally welcome you to Rising Star Montessori School! We first opened our school doors in 1982, in the upstairs of the First Baptist Church in Alameda. Initially starting with just two classrooms, our vision then was to create a school that was welcoming and diverse, with a deep commitment to Montessori education and academic excellence.
Over the years we are proud to have retained that original “Rising Star” vision, while continuing to evolve our vibrant school to meet the needs of children and the community. Many of our diverse staff and teachers have been with us for years and alumni frequently come back to us in unexpected ways. We have even seen our first generations of students return to our community as grown ups – some choosing to send their own children to Rising Star, as well as several who have joined as regular staff members
