We have currently completed the move to Step 5 of the ten-step pathway. This has earned that degree of recognition on the national level along with a seal of achievement to be used on our website and printed materials.
The next step is to get our remaining classroom lead teachers Montessori certified. That will get us to Step 7 will take at least a year and is basically and in-depth self-study detailing descriptions and evidence of philosophy, mission, vision, governance and leadership, personnel and facility resources, finances and stability, records, resources, support systems, and stakeholder communication and relationships.

As a staff we are excited and enthusiastic about the ambitious endeavor as attaining national accreditation has been a goal of AMS since its inception.
