Knoxville Montessori School provides a safe, exciting educational environment where our children develop the courage, self-confidence and skills to pursue their dreams.
Our Montessori experience fosters a strong, inclusive community that embraces structure, freedom, responsibility and a variety of learning styles.
Small classes with low student-teacher ratios, inspired Montessori-trained teachers, and classrooms designed with the child in mind, make KMS a true 'Children's House'.
Education at KMS is based on the principles developed by Maria Montessori and extended and refined by Montessori teachers in America and around the world.
At the heart of this approach is the belief that children will best reach their potential by having the freedom to learn in a classroom especially prepared for exploring under the careful guidance of a trained teacher.

I have two sons. The oldest started at KMS when he was 2 and left at the end of 5th grade. My youngest is a third grader still at KMS. They have done wonderfully socially and academically. Now that my older son is in middle school, I can see what a great education he has received from KMS.
