Bowman International School

"Bowman's success lies at the intersection of ethics, culture, and academic achievement."

-Dr. David Fetterman, Dept of Education, Stanford University

An Independent K-8
Non-profit School


At Bowman we offer a unique educational opportunity for elementary aged children, built on the principles of Maria Montessori.

The Bowman program embodies core Montessori beliefs of respect for people and for the environment. We believe that creativity flourishes in an atmosphere of freedom, acceptance and trust. Freedom does not mean doing whatever we want — adults must be firm, fair and consistent in setting limits, in order for children to build such self-discipline.
