Our Montessori Schools

Welcome to the International Montessori Schools!  We consist of three school locations in southern California, with two preschools in Claremont and an elementary and adolescent school in Montclair.  Our oldest school, affectionately referred to as the Red Preschool, was established in 2002.  The Yellow Preschool is our newest location and was established in 2012. Our Montclair campus accommodates both adolescent school and elementary school students and was established in 2006.

Whereas in a Montessori preschool children work individually and focus on their own rich, inner development, the Montessori elementary student is considered a “child of the world.” These children are newly interested in developing and sustaining personal relationships with others and are beginning to look outside of themselves to find their place in the world. They are keenly interested in the world around them. This leads naturally to more group work, more collaborative projects and more emphasis on community involvement.

The Montessori approach to adolescent development addresses the most fundamental needs of the 12 to 15 year-old child: community and identity. The adolescents can develop a sense of who they are while they study and work in a place where their strengths are recognized. In this diverse community where adults and students collaborate, passions are uncovered, intellects are stimulated and contributions have real meaning. Adolescents thrive in an environment where the use of the brain is partnered with the work of the hands. They develop true responsibility in a culture that models respect and expects hard work.
