What our parents say about Riverside Schools
  • Mr. Adekunle Ashifat
    Riverside Montessori School is a great place for children. It's amazing to see Abdul Rahman Ashifat transform significantly not only in his studies but communication pattern, sports, composure and character. He also understands his environment, culture and values better. We look forward to more progress!

  • Mrs Oyelakin M
    We had continued to take the children to and from Ilupeju daily since we moved into OPIC. I had lots of mixed feelings because their first school was a beautiful family school. With Riverside, we have found another place of comfort and peace, and I am glad the children are happy and above all learning as I have seen great and commendable improvement in both of them. Child care, teaching philosophies, learning experiences and parental involvement are top notch. These experiences give me confidence in the school's approach to education and learning. Thank you, Riverside School!

  • Mrs E. Adekotujo
    Riverside Montessori School has a neat and secure structure and the classroom practices create a good learning environment. The teachers are highly dedicated, passionate, and professional in the discharge of their duties. Intervention classes are organized at no extra cost to the parents, to give the extra push needed for pupils to achieve academic excellence. Our appreciation goes to the board members, teaching and non-teaching staff of the School.

  • Ms. Mercy Aiyenitaju
    Ten years down the line and I still remember loving to come to school every day because of the extracurricular activities that the school provided and the fact that it was always beautifully decorated with appropriate learning materials. The proprietress and all my teachers back then really shaped my life and I’m forever grateful for the privilege.

  • It is with great joy I am able to witness this phenomenal day, the “Tenth Anniversary” of Riverside Montessori School. Ten good years, good nurturing of confident and self-motivated learners. When my kids first arrived, they could not read or write. At that time son was in grade two while my daughter was in nursery school. With much effort from the school, my son picked up so fast and has been winning prizes. He now comes home alongside my daughter, with boast-worthy results. Riverside has been able to broaden the parents’ knowledge through projects given to our children and create awareness for these kids on not just our cultural believes and traditions, but on the customs of foreign countries and languages. With the security measures taken by the school, you can be assured that your child’s safety is certified. From the protection of what your child eats in school and the party packs are given, to who comes in and goes out of the school premises. The school management has been able to ensure a conducive learning environment for our kids.
  • As a parent, I had felt welcomed the first time I came to Riverside Montessori School. I can say I am happy with the school, the employees and the education provided to my children. Most remarkable is the character development and moral values taught.
  • We joined the Riverside family in September 2019 and my boys struggled to adapt to the learning. It was quite different from what they were used to. Their previous school applied the traditional method of learning. Within the last three months, both boys have improved tremendously and they are so outspoken and confident.
  • Whoever is faithful with small things, will be gifted with big things. This is the true testimonial of Riverside Montessori School. They have maintained an excellent standard of education, cultural awareness, a conducive learning environment, and social balance over the years. The school stands out with a clear vision and objectives which is why ‘the anything goes syndrome” does not apply. All alumni of the school are achieving excellent results in various fields as a result of the foundation provided by the school. Riverside is a school that is recognized not just locally but internationally. I am proud of its achievement and happy to relate with the school as a pioneer parent. Congratulations to the school board, parents, teachers/staff, and students of this great school. Keep up the good work
  • When Oluwadurotimi joined Riverside Montessori School he could barely write 1 to 20 but now he writes and identifies to 100 in barely two months. He is always excited to come to school and always excited to write. These days, he gives me etiquette lessons. He just turned 5.  
  • Our son started attending Riverside Montessori School in November 2018. We just moved to the OPIC area and we were looking for a good school for Semilore. My wife who was on a study permit together with Semilore outside Nigeria made some online research about schools in the area and noted down Riverside as a preferred choice together with another school. I visited Riverside to make enquiries and I was satisfied by the responses provided. The only fear we had was if he will be able to cope with the faster system of education (in Nigeria compared to the school he was attending abroad) plus numerous homework peculiar to Nigerian schools. The School Administrator, Mrs. Ugbor assured us that he would be fine. Well, this is his 3rd term now and we have not been disappointed for once. He has learnt and grown in knowledge at a fast pace. The methods of teaching are top notch and the depth of the curriculum is excellent. His class teacher, Mrs Babatunde was very kind to have given him some extra classes so he could catch up with his peers as he joined them late in his first term. Semilore is surely enjoying his new school and he is so disciplined about his home work that it is the first task he does on getting home every school day. We wish Riverside Montessori School a happy 10th anniversary and pray that the next 10 years will see the school soar to enviable heights.
  • Mr. & Mrs.Nwakalor
    It was as if the world was coming to an end when we saw our children performing below expectation, after putting in so much effort to ensure that all is provided to meet a desired standard. But like the saying goes, “dreams are dreams until you make them happen”...

  • Mrs. Bukola Adaghe
    It is my pleasure to recommend Riverside Montessori School to every well-meaning Nigerian. I have been a parent in the school for about 2 years now. When I brought my children, to the school in January 2012, I was a bit jittery that the environment was not in any way comparable to where we were used to; an upcoming school. I could remember the Administrator assuring us that “the taste of the pudding is in the eating”...

  • Mr. Bayo Rojugbokan, FCA
    Riverside Montessori School can best be described as a place of pride and a citadel of complete learning. I watch my two children learning and displaying knowledge of what they are taught in the school with wild amazement...

  • Mr. & Mrs. Okediji
    Riverside Montessori School is a highly dynamic and innovative school. The school has really brought out the potentials in our children and worked on their weaknesses...
