The real preparation for education is the study of one’s self. The training of the teacher… is something far more than the learning of ideas. It includes the training of character; it is preparation of the spirit.

Read about why the Wall Street journal says “the Montessori educational approach might be the surest route to joining the creative elite”.
More than 4,000 Montessori schools dot the American landscape, offering a unique educational model to families nationwide. Thousands more bring the Montessori method to every corner of the world, a method that is over 100 years old.
Montessori schools can be found in rural, urban, and suburban settings; in working-class towns, affluent communities, and even remote villages. Some schools offer all levels of learning, from infant/toddler through the secondary (high school) level. Others offer only certain levels.
In the United States, most Montessori schools are privately owned. A growing number, however, are part of public school systems, making it possible for families of any means to give their child a Montessori education.
