COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:
We follow guidance from the CDC and the NC DHHS to minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19 on both our main campus on Horse Pen Creek Road in Greensboro and our 37-acre satellite campus in Oak Ridge, and masks are currently optional on our campuses.
9 out of 10 of our graduates say they were better prepared for high school than other students in their class. And that’s just the beginning.
97% of our graduates say they are successful adults because of their Montessori education. Why? Because our School is not about surviving hours of arbitrary homework or memorizing facts for the next test. It’s about completing meaningful work, unleashing academic excellence, and solving real-world problems.
Our research-based educational approach stresses cooperative learning with an integrated and interdisciplinary curriculum. Contrary to the “factory-model” of many schools (students move grade-by-grade through a standardized curriculum like a widget in a factory), we educate in multiage classrooms formed to meet the needs of each individual student.
Like adults who work together in communities and businesses, our students collaborate with peers of different ages, interests, and backgrounds and are active contributors to their own success.
One School. Two Campuses.
Our School has a 37-acre satellite campus in Oak Ridge, N.C. This wooded oasis includes a 14-bedroom retreat center, a barn, a covered bridge spanning a freshwater stream, mature hardwoods, peaceful trails, privacy and seclusion, and diverse flora and fauna. It's where our students regularly visit to apply their academic learning, build community, and reflect on their personal and academic growth.

Greensboro Montessori School Reviews
We have been extremely delighted and gratified to see the ways the school has fostered in her a a sense of independence, strong character, and love of learning. I am incredibly grateful that we made the decision to continue her education at GMS! As she has moved into the "Upper School," her experience stands out even more when compared to the public school education experience of other Greensboro family members. Her teachers work as a team, and the subject matter is integrated and linked to give her a greater sense of how to think critically and holistically. The extracurricular options offered by GMS are also outstanding!
Truly amazed at the quality and competency of this school!
A wonderful community where I know my children are taken care of with compassion and respect, and the staff are committed to every child’s growth and success.
