Austin Montessori School has grown to be a thriving community of children, parents, faculty, and staff on three Austin campuses. Austin Montessori is internationally known in Montessori circles as an exemplary school, and it regularly hosts teachers-in-training and other Montessori professionals who come to observe or to attend workshops. Austin Montessori School is the oldest and largest Austin area school recognized by Association Montessori Internationale (AMI)
. AMI is the educational association founded by Maria Montessori and the only one endorsed by her.
Currently, our faculty and staff include 61 committed professionals, twenty-six of whom are AMI-trained with a further seven faculty members currently working towards AMI certification. All five of the full-time instructors at our Adolescent Community have completed the North American Montessori Teachers' Association (NAMTA)
Adolescent Orientation. Since November 2010, AMI has recognized this program as the current AMI adolescent pedagogical offering.
The school strongly invests in continuing education and personal development.
