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.

At The Montessori School, we have three levels of academic programs for your child: Preschool, Kindergarten, and Elementary. We also offer enrichment programs in language, art, music and health and wellness. We encourage you to come observe our dynamic classrooms, meet with a teacher, or talk with a current Montessori parent.

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.
