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.
