Gladwyne Montessori is an independent Montessori school, nestled along Philadelphia’s Main Line. Since 1962, our students have excelled in area high schools and gone on to succeed at top colleges and universities across the country. A Gladwyne Montessori education combines the time-tested and visionary insights of Dr. Maria Montessori with the ever-evolving world of advanced technology and modern research. The result is a confident, curious and academically superior student prepared to compete in the 21st Century economy.
“The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.”Maria Montessori
Our education process is based on the understanding that learning is predicated upon the basic human urge to explore. Many of the skills identified as being essential for success today such as initiative, self-direction, creativity, innovation, and social responsibility have always been prominent focuses of the Montessori philosophy and are what we strive to help develop in all Gladwyne Montessori students.
