Who We Are

With campuses in both Kalamazoo and Richland, The Montessori School serves Southwest Michigan with high quality, comprehensive education that fosters a love of learning and addresses the whole child academically, emotionally, and socially.

Academic Programs

At The Montessori School, we have three levels of academic programs for your child: Primary, Extended Day, and Elementary. We encourage you to come observe our dynamic classrooms, meet with a teacher, or talk with a current Montessori parent.

What is Montessori?

The Montessori education philosophy is based on the research of Dr. Maria Montessori – an Italian physician and educator. At its heart, the Montessori method emphasizes independence, freedom within limits, and a respect for the child.

Each year the classroom guides and other TMS staff generously donate "experience" auction items to include at our fundraising event. These experiences offer time for your child and one of his or her favorite adults to be together doing something fun! This year you have a pre-auction opportunity to buy one of these special experience items NOW! If no one snatches them up ahead of time, they will all be available for bidding at the Main Event. Act fast and go to www.themontessorischool.org/product-category/events/ to BUY IT NOW! Two items have already been purchased ("Campfire with Jocelyn" and "Woodworking with Gary"). Don't miss out! ...
