Acorn Montessori School

Acorn Montessori School Photo #1 - Acorn Montessori School's large campus in the heart of rural Hunterdon County, New Jersey gives students room to grow. As much education goes on outside as it does inside the classrooms. The campus consists of nine large classrooms, a goat barn, orchards, vegetable and flower gardens and three age appropriate playgrounds.
Acorn Montessori School is a community of compassionate, curious scholars; where every person lives confidently, joyfully and passionately, with respect for one another, leading the way to peace and harmony in the greater global society.
Acorn Montessori's vision is: to provide an enriching Montessori-based education that fosters the child's innate love of learning, creativity, and wonder; to cultivate dynamic partnerships between family, school and community; to celebrate the human spirit and honor the diversity among us; and to inspire and impact society through academic excellence and service.
