The heart of learning at American Montessori Academy thrives in orderly and beautiful environments in which our AMS / AMI Montessori Certified educators promote the development of each child’s true potential and ensure success for life-long learning.
We enjoy an excellent student to teacher ratio across all programs, in which skills of independence, self-discipline, problem-solving and a secure foundation of early academic knowledge develop spontaneously within our unique learning environment. Our large, renovated space within the historic building provides new architecture and state-of-the-art classrooms, an expansive indoor large motor room, and a beautiful mezzanine where parents and staff can connect. Brimming windows allow for natural light within classrooms that are fully equipped with child-sized counters, ADA-compliant bathrooms, sinks and fixtures.
