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.

The arts an important aspect of our Bowman program and we provide weekly opportunities for students to learn, experience,  and participate.  This year’s middle school performance of Alice in Wonderland Jr. will be held at Cubberley Theater and students have spent weeks creating scenery, practicing their lines, and helping with costumes.  Tickets are free (but required!) and available at the school office beginning Dec. 8.  From our artists-in-residence to school plays to photography posted on the school pillars, Bowman supports varied artistic opportunities for our students.
