Greensboro Montessori School Curriculum
Founded in 1974, The Greensboro Montessori School is Greenboro’s largest and oldest Montessori school. GMS is accredited by the American Montessori Society, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), and the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS).
GMS has a student body of nearly 300 children ranging in age from 18 months to 14 years of age, and a stable, deeply committed fifty-member faculty that is committed to providing students with an authentic Montessori education where children develop a love of learning through individually guided, hands-on discovery and exploration.
At GMS we foster the growth of the whole child by creating experiences that encourage healthy growth not just academically, but emotionally, spiritually, physically, socially and cognitively as well. Subjects are learned and reinforced by the life-like environments we create on campus – both indoors and outdoors – which trigger our student’s curiosity, engaging them and encouraging them to try, do and discover.
In the words of Maria Montessori, "To consider the school as a place where instruction is given is one point of view. But to consider the school as a preparation for life is another. In the latter case, the school must satisfy all the needs of life." At The Greensboro Montessori School, our sole mission is to "nurture creative, eager learners as they discover their full potential and become responsible, global citizens."
