- The mission of Ivy League Montessori School has always been to provide a "hands-on" approach to education in an environment where students learn "life-long" skills and achieve personal development and intellectual growth. The vision of our school is to offer Montessori education from the Primary through the Elementary years at a level of excellence. At Ivy League Montessori the students are taught a strong work ethic through positive work experience. We were the first Montessori school to open in the Cumming area in 1992, and continue to be the best!

My children have attended this school for 5 years after leaving another Montessori school in the area. What's sad is the false claims the other schools in the area make about Ivy League Montessori School. The school is fully accredited and home to the most dedicated and stable staff we''ve ever. Unlike our prior school, this school, its teachers and administration tell it like it is. You won't find that quality anywhere else.

We are currently in our second year at Ivy League Montessori School and couldn't be happier! I taught in the public school system for 8 years which often frustrated me with its ever changing curriculum and endless assessments. I had extensively researched the Montessori method, which blew me away! Montessori teaches to the whole child, not to the test. This is how all children should be taught. We had previously enrolled our then 3 year old son in another local Montessori school that he dreaded attending everyday. I just didn't feel like they really took the time to understand my son. We still really believed in the method, so we went for a tour at ILMS hoping for better results. The first time we visited we could tell it was going to be a completely different experience. The teachers and staff at ILMS are so warm and friendly. There is such a great vibe the minute you walk in the door. Ms. Jahan is my son's teacher and has made such a difference for my wild little boy! She has the right balance of high expectations with a warm and friendly heart. It was exactly what our son needed! At our first conference she knew our son inside and out and I could tell that she truly cared about his well being. My daughter is now with Ms. Charu who brings so much fun to the classroom and has been very patient with our sassy 3 year old. She shows a deep level of respect for her students and values them for the individuals they are. This is a rare find in preschool! ILMS is such a special place. Not only are my kids learning and growing everyday, I have become a better parent as I learn more about the Montessori way. I know my children are making lifelong friendships they will cherish forever. ILMS is a family that we are so grateful we found!
