Guadalupe Montessori School

Guadalupe Montessori School(GMS)was founded in 1979. Since inception, its goal has been to provide high quality Montessori education to the children of Silver City, New Mexico and surrounding areas.
The school started in one room and has grown to a five-classroom school complete with an organic kitchen, outdoor garden, animal farm, and playground for each age group.
GMS offers an elementary program serving ages 6-12, a primary program serving ages 3-6, and a toddler program serving ages 14 mos-3 yrs.
Along with academic excellence, GMS cultivates leadership skills through a curriculum that includes active community involvement.
GMS students and staff have visited nursing homes, animal shelters, organized recycling efforts and helped create a community garden.
Students have traveled abroad as ambassadors to our community, raised funds for local organizations, various international charities such as Amnesty International and Heifer project, and have lobbied lawmakers for wildlife conservation legislation.
The GMS philosophy is to provide children a diverse and rewarding educational experience, one that will instill in them not only life-long friendships but also a life-long love of learning.
