Montessori Academy is an independent, co-educational school for children 6 weeks through 12 years, located in historic Upland, California.
Founded in 1969 as a Montessori Children's House, Montessori Academy continues as a place where everything has been specifically prepared for children out of respect for the role they play in their own development.
It is a community of children, their teachers, and their parents, where the maturing child finds widening opportunities to learn and grow.
The Montessori approach reveals that your child has a natural curiosity and love of physical and intellectual work.
This is based on the child's need to learn by doing, therefore work is accomplished at the child's pace.
We have a profound respect for children as individual's and as someone with his or her own unique personality.
Our teachers focus on each child individually, and are trained to guide your child in his or her own path of development.
