De Roman Montessori School (or simply DRMS) is a private school in Tanza, Cavite, Philippines.[2] It was founded in October 1994. The educational institution presently accommodates preschool,[3] elementary[4] and high school students.

History[edit]

The Little People's Montessori School was established in October 1994, having Maribelle Del Rosario Macam for its first teacher. Later, it was renamed De Roman Montessori School. At that time, the school accommodated preschool students only namely in the nursery, kindergarten and preparatory levels.

In the school year 2000–01, the school established its Grade 1 class which is the first step of the foundation of its elementary department. Also, during this school year, the construction of the new elementary building was undergoing.

During the school year 2001–02, the new elementary school building was finished and the Grade 1 class was transferred there. The Grade 2 and Grade 3 classes were started at the same time. Grade levels 4-6 was added one by one during the three next consecutive years.
