Tel: (410)730-5056
Grades: PK-3 | 128 students
  • The Julia Brown Montessori Schools have been family owned and operated since 1967.
  • At JBMS, we work with nature, not against it, in helping your child achieve his or her goal.
  • Our program accepts the endless energies, the creative impulses, and insatiable curiosities of the children and gradually directs their efforts into rewarding channels.
  • Children have a strong natural desire to learn.
  • This desire can best be nurtured by allowing the child to choose his or her own activities and to work at his or her own pace.
  • No one can produce a better lesson schedule than the one produced by the child's own interests.
  • When they are ready for each step in their development, their enthusiasm for this part of the program is obvious.
  • Come experience our difference with a private tour.
  • Call to schedule your tour today; we look forward to meeting you!.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
