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.

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.
