School Notes:

  • The philosophy upon which Apple Montessori School is based embraces the most fundamental teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori. Our method is designed to build upon the individual skills and knowledge acquired in the pre-school and kindergarten years. By offering multi-aged classrooms rich with Montessori materials, your child will be actively engaged in their own learning process. He or she can move through new challenging materials quickly, or on to another experience without the boredom of waiting for others to catch up. He or she can repeat these same activities until mastery is achieved. This can be done without frustration of being pushed ahead before one is ready. His or her own feelings of accomplishment act as a reinforcement to succeed.

School Reviews

  • Recommended December 13, 2013 - My son has been at Apple Montessori School since he was 1 1/2 years old and graduates kindergarten this year. AMS is an incredible school where children thrive. We WISH Apple Montessori had elementary grades in the area. Because of his experience at Apple, my son has chosen to commute approximately an hour from home to stay in a Montessori school for his elementary education. As a parent I HIGHLY recommend Apple Montessori!!! If you''re making a decision for your child, take a tour and pay special attention to the work posted outside each classroom... Remember... it''s all the work of children from 2-6 years old!!! - Posted by Parent
