MIR is located at 1890 Orange Avenue, Redlands, CA 92373
The school is built in a village style consisting of one main building on our south campus, and three smaller buildings on the north, connected by a pedestrian bridge. This setting encourages a sense of community and belonging for the students, vs. the institutional setting of traditional schools.
The campus is situated in the middle of a 12-acre grapefruit grove, divided east to west by the Morrey Arroyo. This environment is an important extension of the classroom. It provides beauty, safety, learning opportunities, and physical development for the children, as well as fosters respect and appreciation of the natural world and its creatures.
The campus is graced with gardens, play areas, a labyrinth, walkways,
benches, and picnic tables. A large soccer field and play
court (basketball, volleyball) are located on the north campus.
"When the child goes out, it is the world itself that offers itself to him. Let us take the child out to show him real things instead of making objects which represent ideas and closing them up in cupboards."--Maria Montessori
