We started at the Montessori School of Huntsville during summer camp two years ago. It only took a two week summer camp to realize what a wonderful place this is. My son who was 3 at the time did not want us to pick him up at the end of the day! What a change this was from our previous attempts at daycare, when he would cry during drop off. In his two years at the school we have definitely noticed improvements in all aspects of his development. This school leans heavily on the Montessori Method and it has produced fabulous results for us. We intend on keeping him at this school as long as possible. He truly enjoys being dropped off everyday and spending time with the students, teachers, and staff.

My son has been at the Montessori School of Huntsville for over six years now. We started there because it was a school, not a day care. It was a safe place, with caring teachers and he learned an incredible amount, even at that young age. Before kindergarten he was reading, working math problems and knew more geography than most adults. We are now in the third grade and couldn't be happier. The learning has never stopped, so many families there are close friends and the teachers are fantastic. Visit a classroom and observe the children as they go about their work and the difference is clear.

Since attending MSH, my son has learned so many life skills. It's very comforting to be able to leave him with such caring teachers, who guide him with work of his choosing. He looks forward to going to school every day because he feels comfortably challenged, and he's formed much stronger friendships than he ever did attending a daycare. I highly recommend MSH!

We started at MSH two years ago and are well into our third school year. Every year, my son has grown by leaps and bounds. Due to the three year cycle espoused by Montessori, he had the same teachers his first two years and has moved into a new class this year with a range of ages. The transition went beautifully and he loves his new teachers and friends. He likes how the big boys and girls help him complete tasks and learning to do things on his own! The administration and staff of the school love and respect the children and it shows in the quality of the education. As parents, we have found a home here as well with the tight-knit community and they myriad of opportunities available to all family members to get involved and help out at the school. We love Montessori School of Huntsville!

The Montessori School of Huntsville is a great school with dedicated teachers utilizing a method that is scientifically proven to enhance the love of learning in children and I have seen it first hand with my child. The Montessori method becomes a way of life, and the community at MSH has become our extended family.

We have been absolutely pleased with every aspect of this school. The teachers are wonderful and work with us (the parents) to encourage growth, appropriate development and the best all around experiences for our child. The buildings are always spotless and the grounds are beautiful. I recommend our school to everyone and will be sending our 12 month old there with his big brother this fall.

My daughter has had a wonderful experience at The Montessori School of Huntsville. She has attended for three and a half years, from age 4 to age 7. Children are respected by teachers and each child is taught to respect others, as well. There are so many benefits to a Montessori education, and we have been so fortunate to be able to send our daughter to a such a wonderful example of a true Montessori school. I highly recommend this school to anyone considering a private school in the Huntsville area.

Our daughter attended Montessori since she was three and a half. At Kindergarten age she was reading at a 2nd grade level. Costly, but worth every penny.

About this school

The Montessori School of Huntsville is an independent, nonprofit, parent-governed school for children ages 18 months through the fifth grade. We use the methods developed over a century ago by Dr. Maria Montessori. This begins with a deep respect for children as individuals and a genuine concern for their social and emotional development. Our rich curriculum integrates cooking, gardening, music, art, and Spanish with math, reading, writing, history, botany, zoology, physical science, and geography. We seek to ensure educational quality through small class sizes, low teacher/child ratios, and close communication with parents. We have two campuses—a cozy, homelike atmosphere with a shaded playground on Blevins Gap Road, and a “green” school on Chaney Thompson Road with a day-lit design, allergen-fighting HEPA filtration, and an access-controlled entry. Our staff and students come from all over the world and speak a wide variety of languages. This cultural, religious, and racial diversity is one of our most prized strengths. * * * “Whoever touches the life of the child touches the most sensitive point of a whole which has roots in the most distant past and climbs toward the infinite future.” - Maria Montessori
