A local group of parents, convinced that a Montessori education is the best available for children, founded Northwood Montessori School in 1975.
Established as a non-profit educational organization, Northwood is the oldest AMI recognized school in the FM 1960 area.
Providing children beween the ages of 2 1/2 and 6 1/2 with a safe, stable environment which enables them to develop self-confidence, independence, inner discipline and a love for learning is the school's purpose.
Here, each child progresses through an individualized program consisting of language development, reading, math skills, botany, geography, art, music and movement.
