The Greensboro Montessori School Profile

Greensboro Montessori School ProfileAt The Greensboro Montessori School children ages eighteen months through eighth grade develop of love of learning through individually guided, hands-on discovery and exploration.  Subjects are learned and reinforced by the life-like environments we create on campus – indoor and outdoor – which trigger our students’ curiosity, engaging them and encouraging them to try, do and discover.


Our student body of 250 children enjoys a nine-acre campus which includes classroom buildings, a gymnasium, a teaching kitchen, a series of organic gardens and playgrounds designed for several age levels, a sports field, as well as nature areas offering walking trails, an amphitheater and shelters.  Our Land Lab in Oak Ridge, NC provides a unique hands-on living and learning environment for our Middle School students for extended periods throughout the year and younger students for day-visits.
