The History of The Greensboro Montessori School
In 1974, three Greensboro mothers, seeking an environment of educational self-discovery for their pre-school children, formed a cooperative nursery with one hired teacher. The school took the name of The Greensboro Language Center and the following year became incorporated as a non-profit Montessori school. In 1978, the directors approved a merger with the Friendly Avenue Montessori School and changed its name to the Greensboro Montessori School. Prior to moving to its current location in 1989, the school rented facilities at the First Moravian Church and later a small building behind Guilford Middle School. Since its inception in 1974, our school has grown from one three to six year old primary classroom of twelve children to more than 200 students and 55 staff.
