Arlington Montessori House
Tel: (703) 524-2511
Arlington Montessori House is affectionately referred to as Hippo School by staff and families.
We have two classes in two adjacent houses that share a common driveway and playground.
Each class has 28 students (of mixed ages), one teacher and one assistant.
Both teachers hold Association Montessori International (AMI) certification. Our program is a three-year program: two years of pre-school and kindergarten.
We expect new families to enroll with intention of keeping their child in the school for three years--through kindergarten.
This third year is the culmination of the primary level Montessori experience where children reap the benefits of the past two years, facilitating entry into a new school with a high degree of self-confidence, independence and enthusiasm for learning.

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
