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.

Bowman’s Walk to School Day, April 22
As a way to celebrate Earth Day, Bowman families are asked to join our first Walk to School Day on Wednesday, April 22.  Although most families live too far away to actually walk to Bowman, we wanted to give students the opportunity to walk to school with others and think about ways to help the Earth at the same time.  Hosted groups will be leaving from three different locations or you can pick your own path.  Thanks to our incredible Bowman Association of Parents (BAP) for initiating this fun and educational event.
