Amelia Island Montessori School Reviews

2 reviews
Inside and out, a true Montessori school. As a current parents, my first impressions: tucked away into nature, an idyllic setting with green space, gardens outside each classroom, a chicken coop (yes, they sell the eggs), and a delightful assortment of outdoor projects.
Inside the classroom: the Maria Montessori philosophy at work. Mixed-age classrooms, wooden materials that encourage critical thinking, children quiet and focused on their learning-by-doing work; teachers directing and encouraging rather than lecturing.
For a parent of two young ones, this is the only school on Amelia Island that honors and respects the fullness of childhood. There's an element of magic here. To understand that and to take advantage of what this school offers, parents need to read books about Montessori and its roots.

My son has been at Amelia Island Montessori School since he was just under two years old, and he is now completing third grade. He has developed a real love for learning, as he puts it, "you get really into the things you're studying and the teachers make it really fun." The Montessori philosophy is rooted in educating the whole child, building compassion and character, and you can see that in action at Amelia Island Montessori.
