Parents, supporters, and local officials joined Many Rivers' students, faculty, staff and Board of Trustees in officially opening the school at 110 W. Redwing Street. Classes began last week for children in preschool through eighth grade.

the 43,000-square food building is the former Cobb Elementary School, a former building of the Duluth Public Schools that recently had been used as a school by The Hills Youth and Family Services.

Many Rivers Montessori started four years ago and recently had occupied space in two leased locations in East Duluth. The Head of School, Mark Niedermier says he's excited to call this building their permanent home. 

"The mission of our school is to offer education and help children become independent, academically prepared, socially responsible individuals who are lifelong learners and problem solvers," Niedermier says. "We strongly believe in that mission. We strongly believe in the Montessori Pedagogy, and this supports all that work. It lets us implement that vision."

Some features of the new school includes sunny learning environments, in-room restrooms, a new playground, and an elevator for full accessibility.

Many Rivers plans to host a public open house Saturday, September 15th from 1-3 p.m. with guided tours available.
