Fostering children's natural curiosity and desire to learn since 1976

Welcome to

A Brief History

Founded in 1976, Rainbow Montessori began on a small school site in Campbell. Operations expanded over the years to include six more small school sites located across the South Bay Area. Eventually, those seven small schools were consolidated into our current site, located on the former campus of Sunnyvale High School.

Our School Today

Our current site affords us the space to provide care and education for over 500 children, ranging in age from six weeks to fifth grade. The Montessori philosophy is utilized in all infant, toddler, preschool, kindergarten, and elementary programs.

"Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child open up himself to life."

School Communications

February 27th, 2024

Please note that we have made an adjustment to our school calendar. The school will be closed to children for Parent Teacher conferences and will only be held for one day on March 22nd.

Child care will not be available to children, but they are welcome to attend the conference with their parents/guardians or parents may schedule a virtual meeting to check in with their child's teaching team.
