"Our aim is not only to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core."
-Maria Montessori

Founded in 1972 by Executive Director John Page, Meher Montessori School is an AMI accredited Montessori school serving children from 2 1/2-12 years of age. It has two locations. One is located in Monterey Park. The other location is in Altadena. Both are adjacent to Los Angeles. The AMI accreditation is of special significance because of the many thousands of schools in the United States that call themselves "Montessori" only a small percentage are formally recognized by AMI. Only a few meet AMI's rigorous standards. What is AMI? AMI is Association Montessori Internationale, an organization founded in 1929 by Dr. Maria Montessori, to train teachers in the Montessori Method and accredit schools. Dr. Montessori founded AMI to preserve the authenticity and integrity of her Method. All of our teachers hold the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) diploma in addition to their undergraduate degrees. Here is an educational comparison between Montessori and Mainstream education. So how do Montessori children compare to other children after they finish the Montessori Curriculum? Here is one study.
