Risen Lord Montessori School, serving preschool and elementary children ages three to nine, opened its doors in September of 2004 in response to the obvious need for Montessori schools on the south side of Indianapolis. In addition to Indianapolis, it serves the communities of Bargersville, Center Grove, Franklin, Greenwood, Martinsville, Mooresville, New Whiteland, Trafalgar, and Whiteland. As Maria Montessori said, "If houses for children do not exist, then let us build them." RLMS fills a unique niche in the community as not only one of the few Montessori schools on the south side, but also one of the only Christian Montessori schools in the metropolitan Indianapolis area. Housed within Risen Lord Lutheran Church as one of its ministries, it is located on ten beautiful acres in Johnson County and has the full support of a dynamic and growing church.

The teachers are committed to loving each child as God loves them, unconditionally and without fail. Within this atmosphere of Christian love, children learn respect for the Lord, the world, one another and the materials. As a Christian Montessori school, children will learn to give to those in need both locally and globally. At Risen Lord Montessori School, teachers trained in the Montessori method help each child work in a carefully prepared environment at the developmentally appropriate time. RLMS is committed to help each child reach his/her full potential.
