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.

We’re honored to welcome Erin Ganju back to Bowman the evening of April 22nd with our parents and staff. This will be the culmination of our exciting month long program, developed jointly by our school and Room To Read, that helped students better understand the concept of being a Global Citizen – a core value at Bowman. Room to Read has worked with Bowman in the classroom to provide an experiential learning curriculum about Asia, providing students firsthand knowledge of the culture, demographics, and economy, and the intricacies of launching an NGO abroad.
