About Us

"Arbor is the place where I first fell in love with learning. But more than that, it is the environment I credit with shaping me, from a very young age, to become an independent, open-minded and caring individual."

The mission of Arbor Montessori School is to develop the unique capabilities of each child through supportive relationships, joyful learning and meaningful work in a Montessori environment. We seek to foster independence in each child, preparing him or her to contribute with integrity to the community of the larger world.

“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 Montessori School 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.

Since 1970, 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 benchmark for Montessori education worldwide.
