The Montessori Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of Montessori education in the United States and abroad. We work with Montessori educational leaders, educators, and school board members to promote best practices in Montessori education, and to help Montessori schools to grow stable and strong. The Montessori Foundation also serves as a resource center and source of information, advice, and assistance to parents who are interested in Montessori education, or who have children currently attending Montessori schools. Montessori represents a distinctly different educational approach that has proven to be highly effective, replicable, adaptable, and sustainable around the world. The name Montessori is well known, but many Americans are just now becoming aware of the size of the movement and its growing support among leading proponents of meaningful educational reform. Boiled down to its essence, Montessori schools begin with children when they are very young, and nurtures their intelligence, creativity, and imagination. The program is designed to allow students to learn at their own pace, and is highly flexible. It is successful with a wide-range of learners, but especially the highly gifted. There are more than 5,000 Montessori schools in the United States, and it is estimated that there are some 50,000 world-wide. That number is rapidly expanding. Montessori schools are known for developing young people who have developed a passion for learning, a fierce sense of independence and responsibility, a global perspective, and a tradition of giving back to their communities. Our graduates include the founders of many of the world's most successful companies (Google, Amazon, AOL to name just three), and many other well-known figures in science, technology, and the arts.
