Supposing I said there was a planet without schools or teachers, where study was unknown, and yet the inhabitants -- doing nothing but live and walk about -- came to know all things, to carry in their minds the whole of learning; would you not think I was romancing? Well, just this, which seems so fanciful as to be nothing but the invention of a fertile imagination, is a reality. It is the child's way of learning.

-Maria Montessori


Welcome to Staunton Montessori School

Staunton Montessori School, founded in 1980, provides Primary (ages 3-6) and Elementary (6-12) Montessori education as a unique alternative for the community. This approach to learning was developed by Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952), an Italian physician and educator, who believed that education should be based on a child's needs during sensitive periods of development. The core tenets of her philosophy emphasize independence, order, self-discipline and respect for others. Combining this foundation with specialized educational materials makes the Montessori classroom a unique and challenging atmosphere for learning.

Staunton Montessori School offers AMI trained primary and elementary teachers on staff. The elementary teachers also both have their Masters Degrees in Education. We operate as a non-profit entity with oversight by a Board of Trustees. The school is also licensed by the Virginia Department of Social Services.

Mission Statement

Staunton Montessori School respects the mind, imagination, and spirit of each student. Grounded in the philosophy of Maria Montessori, we create an environment where children are empowered to fulfill their academic, personal and social potential.
