  • At the Greensboro Montessori School, children and their families share in a stimulating and nurturing educational experience, built upon the core values of respect, independence, and responsibility. Teachers tailor the classroom experience to each child`s developmental needs, allowing the child to pace herself and simultaneously discover the joy of learning as its own reward. Maria Montessori believed that children should be nurtured to develop according to their individual needs and timetables for growth.
  • She also believed that if children were then guided as they explored awareness of themselves, their communities, and the natural world, they would develop into peaceful, fully productive adults who could benefit and steward the world with unprecedented success.
  • We nurture children to be creative, eager learners as they discover their full potential and become responsible, global citizens.

Hello, I am an alumnus of the Greensboro Montessori School and was part of the 2015-16 class. I'm currently attending the Early College at Guilford and I cannot thank this school enough for all it has given me--I would rate this school 10/5 stars if I could. I began my journey here at this school in Primary when I was 5 years old, and each year has been eye-opening and engaging from start to finish. In terms of academics, the GMS has prepared me in every way possible for my high school experience; despite their lack of focus on end-of-year tests. I took classes on every core subject: Math (I reached math III), Science, Humanities (consisting of English, Geography, and History), Spanish, Visual Arts and Performance and Production (Music & Theater). The one EOC I did take I got a 5 out of 5 on. In the classroom, the Montessori uses hands-on teaching methods and allows students to work at their own pace. For example in 1st grade, I had begun my work on "hands-on" algebra while the other students learned multiplication and division. Furthermore, each grade at the Montessori school works hand in hand, using the curriculum as a foundation to then build on for each subject and concept. From pre-K to middle school, I've learned a myriad of life skills from cooking, to raising a child, to owning a business, to creating a movie, to leading a team, to creating loving relationships with both students and teachers, and have had opportunities to visit, Williamsburg Virginia, Washington D.C., Arizona, the United Nations in New York, and even Costa Rica. Each of these experiences has taught me life skills that I will treasure forever. Additionally, I was able to play every sport offered at the GMS--soccer, football, volleyball, basketball, and cross country--in a competitive setting and have learned skills as a leader and a team member. Throughout my years at this school, I've learned that while academics are important (and with the school I am at now, they certainly are), they are just the surface of what one needs to know in life. If you are looking to send your child to this school, they will love it from start to finish, I can guarantee it; however, there will be some bumpy roads, but hey, that's life. Often times I come back to visit the school and when I think about the memories I've created, all I want to do is return, for Montessori is my second home.

We feel privileged to be a part of this community! The teachers and school leadership are focused on providing one-on-one, personalized education for our child and their communication with us is such that we feel as though we are a team focused on our child's education and development as an individual. The environment is completely set up to foster that development and within the curriculum much is focused on providing a holistic approach to raising, educating and developing future leaders by incorporating mentorship, diversity, environmental awareness, etc. The graduates of this school (goes through middle school) go on to some of the top programs and magnet schools for high school and college prep in the Triad.
