COVID-19 Update:

The Montessori School will remain closed through the summer (June, July, and August) in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 among our staff and students. This time will be used by the administration to develop new safety and health protocols for when we return this fall. In the interim, administrative staff will be monitoring emails and phone messages at least once per week. Should you need to get in touch with a member of our staff for any reason, please email us at support@themontessorischool.org.

The school fosters an intimacy that feels like family. They’re not just teaching kids to think critically and to act responsibly; the school encourages the students, and the parents, to care.

Our Mission

The Montessori School’s mission is for children and families to experience an individualized education that builds the foundation for a lifetime of success and a love of learning through specialized teachers, lessons, and materials. We believe in a holistic approach that fosters good global citizens and forward-thinking problem solvers.

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.
