43 Years of Putting Children First
Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future.” – Maria Montessori
At Arbor, we prepare children to go anywhere. Anywhere their interests, dreams and passions take them.
- We teach them math, science and language so they can thrive anywhere academically.
- We encourage independence, self-direction and critical reasoning so they have the tools to make good decisions anywhere their life takes them.
- We teach collaboration, cooperation and peace because we know our children can be agents of change anywhere they go in the world.
For 44 years Arbor Montessori has been the flagship of Montessori education in Atlanta. We are one of the largest Montessori schools in the Southeast and regarded as a model studied by many other schools worldwide.

What People Are Saying about Montessori
“Let’s learn from Montessori: …we don’t have to reinvent the wheel…. The example of thousands of Montessori schools is before us. Montessori puts the student at the center. It is proven to work… it’s working on every inhabited continent, at every economic level. The approach is over 100 years old but the ideas are timeless.
“I see the thread of Montessori through my children’s life journeys. They didn’t have to take time off to ‘find themselves.’ They had been discovering who they were since their first day of Primary. Montessori allowed them to flourish”.
“Montessori is a brain-based developmental method that allows children to make creative choices in discovering people, places and knowledge of the world.”
“I do not believe there is a method better than Montessori for making children sensitive to the beauties of the world and awakening their curiosity regarding the secrets of life.”
“I left Arbor with all the right buzz-word qualities in my back pocket: curiosity, independence, open-mindedness, etc. But it was in the times when these qualities were put to the test that I realized how truly prepared to take on the world I was after leaving Arbor.”
