Akron Montessori School is a private school offering a comprehensive academic program based on the Montessori method for children ages 1 to 6 years. AMS offers a complete toddler and primary school curriculum (up to kindergarten). The school is open from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., with extended care offered from 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
The primary school was founded in September, 1984 and the elementary program was added in 1994. In 2006 we expanded again to include an infant-toddler program. Our campus is located on three acres in a secluded area of Montrose. This park-like setting provides the perfect environment for gardening, hiking, and nature study.
AMS has no religious affiliation and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or ethnic origin in all of its dealings with children or employees. Our programs are licensed by the Ohio Department of Education and are directed by guides trained in the Montessori method.
“Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him into the world” -Maria Montessori
Our Mission Statement
Our aim is to help each child experience the joy and excitement of learning. We recognize and respect the uniqueness of each child and provide an environment to promote the development of selfconfidence and independence. We believe that almost every child has the ability to learn to read in his or her formative years and we provide the environment and guidance for achieving this ability. We want to help every child to work independently—to explore, discover and experience the joy of learning so that each child can realize his or her full potential.
