  • The Montessori School of Huntsville is an independent, nonprofit, parent-governed school for children ages 18 months through the fifth grade.
  • We use the methods developed over a century ago by Dr. Maria Montessori.
  • This begins with a deep respect for children as individuals and a genuine concern for their social and emotional development.
  • Our rich curriculum integrates cooking, gardening, music, art, and Spanish with math, reading, writing, history, botany, zoology, physical science, and geography.
  • We seek to ensure educational quality through small class sizes, low teacher/child ratios, and close communication with parents.
  • We have two campuses—a cozy, homelike atmosphere with a shaded playground on Blevins Gap Road, and a “green” school on Chaney Thompson Road with a day-lit design, allergen-fighting HEPA filtration, and an access-controlled entry.
  • Our staff and students come from all over the world and speak a wide variety of languages.
  • This cultural, religious, and racial diversity is one of our most prized strengths.
  • * * * “Whoever touches the life of the child touches the most sensitive point of a whole which has roots in the most distant past and climbs toward the infinite future.” - Maria Montessori.

School Notes

The Montessori School of Huntsville educates toddler through upper elementary children to help them realize their richest potential for learning, and to prepare them for a life of purpose, integrity and academic accomplishment in the larger community. We develop independent learners, critical thinkers and tomorrow's leaders.

We accomplish this through:

  • Providing a curriculum that adheres to the principles established by Dr. Maria Montessori, informed by current thinking and research on child development and learning;
  • Encouraging each child to grow to his or her fullest potential academically, emotionally, physically and socially;
  • Presenting individualized instruction that inspires children to think, question, discover and to work to their full potential regardless of chronological age;
  • Partnering with parents to ensure that appropriate challenges and support are provided to enable each student to prepare for the social and academic transitions he or she faces;
  • Providing educational opportunities in music, art, physical education and foreign language for all students;
  • Recognizing that personal growth involves responsibility toward others and toward the environment;
  • Increasing our understanding of child development and sharing this understanding with parents and the broader community;
  • Developing understanding and appreciation for the value of a Montessori education and the value of our school in the community.
