Teaching & Learning

RMMS was established in 1992 to offer the diverse student population of our region an innovative program demonstrating best educational practices within a multicultural curriculum.  In 2015, it applied and was accepted as an IB Primary Years Program candidate school.*  IB is an international non-profit with almost 6000 educational programs that are globally recognized as challenging, engaging, and relevant. Inquiry is a key instructional approach at IB schools, so students research topics and issues of local and global significance. Being part of the IB provides additional structure and extends the RMMS curriculum.

While providing a strong academic structure, IB schools also address the social, emotional, and physical needs of children which has always been a priority at RMMS as well.  Our students discuss and develop ten qualities found in highly effective people: caring, inquirer, thinker, principled, open minded, balanced, communicators, knowledgeable, risk-takers, and reflective.

*RMMS is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme and pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.** *Only schools authorized by the International Baccalaureate can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the IB Career-related Certificate (IBCC). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit
