Hollister Montessori School

Hollister Montessori School's first opened in September 1998.  The school offered only one Primary class (ages 3 C 6) for many years.
To meet the needs of the community, an elementary class was added in September 2006.
Currently we offer a three-year Primary program and an elementary program from first through sixth grades. We strive to offer an excellent Montessori education and our teachers hold Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) certification.
