Innovative Voices of Youth


As Turtle River Montessori alumni we’ve developed long-lasting friendships and life long bonds from our TRM experience.

We are committed to cultivating kindness and making a real impact in the world by amplifying our voices, and those of leaders and innovators.

We selected the name TRM IVY for several reasons, the acronym stands for: Innovative Voices of Youth. The Celtic Origin of Ivy has a very relevant symbolism. The Celtic meaning deals with connections and friendships because of its propensity to interweave in growth. Ever furrowing and intertwining, the ivy is an example of the twists and turns of our friendships, and our life’s journey – and a testimony to the long-lasting connections and bonds we form with our friends and TRM alumni that last over the years. Ivy is also a nod to the term Ivy League which of course is a group of elite colleges with the connotation of academic excellence and vigor. Please join us in our TRM IVY adventures!
