Welcome to the Montessori Schools of Flagstaff
We empower children to be self-reliant, responsible community members by nurturing mind, body, and spirit.
The Montessori Schools of Flagstaff follow the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician who developed a unique perspective in child education, a perspective that honors their natural aptitude for acquiring knowledge. Twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for her educational methodology, she observed that children who are placed in a rich academic and socially prepared environment develop an innate love for learning — an attitude that promotes self-awareness and self-discipline. The child learns to appreciate and respect himself, his peers, his teachers, and his environment.
American Montessori Society
As an American Montessori Society affiliate, we are nonsectarian, family-oriented, and we build close working relationships among our students, parents, staff, and community members. In addition to our tuition-free charter school (kindergarten, elementary, and middle school), we also offer tuition-based preschool, after school, and summer programs.
The American Montessori Society’s Pathway of Continuous School Improvement is a school-quality initiative available to every AMS member school that helps schools demonstrate and articulate their commitment to quality Montessori education.
