Montessori American School Photo #9 - As early as age 2, we begin teaching our children how to speak Spanish as a second language at a time when a child is in a sensitive period of language. According to Dr. Montessori: "No child can learn to perfection as many languages as he hears spoken about him."

This helps your child enhance his social skills, coordination, listening and motor skills. Participating in music activities also improves learning skills and memory.

Montessori American School is a private, bilingual preschool and kindergarten serving children ages 2-6.
Our main goal is to help our students become independent by helping them with practical life skills such as tying shoes, buttoning shirts, and pouring milk.
Our academic programs are based on the principles taught by Dr Maria Montessori and we employ only bi-lingual teachers who are all AMS certified.
We offer educational enrichment courses like Spanish as a second language, art, art history, music, and children's yoga to help shape our youngsters beyond the core curriculum that we offer. While many of our competitors have come and gone over the years, we are a mainstay and have been since 1988. Just ask the parents of the students we serve!

Best teachers, best campus. My kindergarten graduit is reading to her sister every night. I am in love with this school. Now my oldest has to move on and I can't find anything that I feel compares to the environment Mrs. Edith and staff provide.
