What our parents say about Riverside Schools
  • When Oluwadurotimi joined Riverside Montessori School he could barely write 1 to 20 but now he writes and identifies to 100 in barely two months. He is always excited to come to school and always excited to write. These days, he gives me etiquette lessons. He just turned 5.  
  • Our son started attending Riverside Montessori School in November 2018. We just moved to the OPIC area and we were looking for a good school for Semilore. My wife who was on a study permit together with Semilore outside Nigeria made some online research about schools in the area and noted down Riverside as a preferred choice together with another school. I visited Riverside to make enquiries and I was satisfied by the responses provided. The only fear we had was if he will be able to cope with the faster system of education (in Nigeria compared to the school he was attending abroad) plus numerous homework peculiar to Nigerian schools. The School Administrator, Mrs. Ugbor assured us that he would be fine. Well, this is his 3rd term now and we have not been disappointed for once. He has learnt and grown in knowledge at a fast pace. The methods of teaching are top notch and the depth of the curriculum is excellent. His class teacher, Mrs Babatunde was very kind to have given him some extra classes so he could catch up with his peers as he joined them late in his first term. Semilore is surely enjoying his new school and he is so disciplined about his home work that it is the first task he does on getting home every school day. We wish Riverside Montessori School a happy 10th anniversary and pray that the next 10 years will see the school soar to enviable heights.
  • Mr. & Mrs.Nwakalor
    It was as if the world was coming to an end when we saw our children performing below expectation, after putting in so much effort to ensure that all is provided to meet a desired standard. But like the saying goes, “dreams are dreams until you make them happen”...
    Mr. & Mrs.Nwakalor
  • Mrs. Bukola Adaghe
    It is my pleasure to recommend Riverside Montessori School to every well-meaning Nigerian. I have been a parent in the school for about 2 years now. When I brought my children, to the school in January 2012, I was a bit jittery that the environment was not in any way comparable to where we were used to; an upcoming school. I could remember the Administrator assuring us that “the taste of the pudding is in the eating”...
    Mrs. Bukola Adaghe
  • Mr. Bayo Rojugbokan, FCA
    Riverside Montessori School can best be described as a place of pride and a citadel of complete learning. I watch my two children learning and displaying knowledge of what they are taught in the school with wild amazement...
    Mr. Bayo Rojugbokan, FCA
  • Mr. & Mrs. Okediji
    Riverside Montessori School is a highly dynamic and innovative school. The school has really brought out the potentials in our children and worked on their weaknesses...

There are some things you can do to protect yourself and your family. Taking these steps will be especially important for Gillette patients who may be more vulnerable to infection. To start:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow the NCDC’s recommendations for using a face mask.
  • NCDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask or an N95 respirator to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
  • Face masks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of face masks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility). 
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
