The Montessori School celebrates 50th Anniversary!
The Montessori School, established by the Montessori Society of Central Maryland, Inc., was founded in 1962 by a small group of parents dedicated to providing a Montessori education for their children. Nearly 7,000 students have attended Montessori since its inception and graduates are represented at all private schools as well as a large number of public schools in the Baltimore metropolitan area. The school is accredited by the American Montessori Society and Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
Today, The Montessori School includes programs for toddlers (starting at 18 months old) through grade six at its Emerson Farm campus at the corner of Falls and Greenspring Valley Roads. This location is also home to its affiliate, Emerson Farm Middle School, a Montessori-based program for grades seven and eight, which opened in 2005. The Maryland Center for Montessori Studies, a Montessori early childhood teacher training program, has been in operation at the Lutherville location since 1993. The Emerson Farm campus, named after the historic farm property that the Montessori Society of Central Maryland purchased and began refurbishing in 1977, now serves approximately 250 students.

The Best Beginning…
Children are eager, spontaneous learners curious about the world around them. And you, the parent, are your child’s first teacher. At your knee your child spoke his or her first word, took the first step, heard the first story. The Montessori School is an extension of the education you have begun at home. We at Montessori view education as an aid to life, as a process. Our role is to preserve and nurture your child’s natural curiosity and to develop an openness to the limitless possibilities of life.
We believe that children learn best when they are actively involved in the learning process. Children not only learn, but thrive in an environment that is specially prepared to meet their physical, cognitive and social needs, and satisfy their intrinsic interests. Our curriculum offers children freedom of choice in a dynamic, energized classroom where learning is tangible.
