In 1988 the Montessori American School was founded by Edith Gruener and opened its doors with 48 students. Today the school serves 96 children between the ages of 2 and 6 years. The school has developed a reputation among the community for its unique program serving young children.

Situated in Bonita, the facility is distinguished by its beautiful indoor-outdoor learning areas. A well-equipped park like playground, air-conditioned classrooms and their adjoining gardens are part of the overall Montessori plan for learning. Designed and sized for young children, each room is self-contained with a bathroom and plenty of space for individual and group activity.

Our Faculty

At the Montessori American School we are caring, nurturing and loving.

To be an effective Montessori teacher, a person must have sound self-esteem, good character, sensitivity, creativity, years of professional experience and, most importantly, a profound love of children. We select our staff in accordance with these standards.

Our teachers have academic credentials as well as an internationally recognized certification in the Montessori Method. Above all, our teachers are dedicated to helping all children realize their unlimited potential for learning and personal achievement.
