Montessori School at Emory
01 Our Roots
Montessori School at Emory was founded over 22 years ago becoming accredited as a Montessori School in 1993. For many years the school was located on Scott Blvd. and housed one toddler program, three primary classes and a combined upper and lower elementary program.
In 2008 the school moved to it's current campus on North Decatur road. With our new location came the expansion of our programs to encompass two toddler environments, four primary communities and separate lower and upper elementary classes.
Today Montessori School at Emory is a thriving, vibrant community. With over 175 students, from 15 months through 14 years, the Montessori School at Emory continues to support the whole child and prepare them for life through accredited, authentic quality Montessori programs.
03 The Future
Montessori School at Emory is growing! This year our adolescent program began. Montessori School at Emory's middle school environment is on target to grow even more into the future.
01 Core Values
Montessori School at Emory believes in planting the seeds of learning in the fertile ground of a child’s natural curiosity and joy in discovery, thus nurturing through the school years the child’s initiative to explore and to question, to engage with the world, to learn, and to emerge as a creative, imaginative, independent life-long learner.
We believe that each child is a unique individual and learning is a process that involves all of the senses, especially touch, and the senses feed the child’s absorbent and eager mind.
02 Tradition of Diversity
Montessori School at Emory is truly a global community with children, parents, and staff from all over the world. This diversity is celebrated and embraced. Montessori School at Emory families are encouraged to share their culture with the classroom and the school.
