About this school

Arbor Montessori is the flagship of Montessori education in the Southeast. The school has been accredited by AMI, the organization founded by Dr. Maria Montessori to ensure the authenticity of her pedagogy, since its opening. Arbor is now one of only three schools in the greater Atlanta area to offer an AMI-accredited Montessori program from ages 18 months through 14 years. We offer two campuses in Decatur: one on Lavista Road and one opening in fall 2016 on Scott Boulevard.
