“We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are part of the universe and are connected with each other to form one whole unity.”

Maria Montessori

Capital Campaign

For more than 50 years, Gladwyne Montessori has offered an educational experience unlike any other. Utilizing the internationally recognized Montessori Method, students thrive in mixed-age classrooms uniquely designed around a child’s perspective, using materials that inspire them to question, collaborate and succeed. Through our one-of-a-kind rigorous, yet flexible, curriculum, our children learn to think differently, from the classroom to the playground. They gain complex cognitive skills as they explore the world with a passion and purpose. The result: engaged and curious scholars who are independent, respectful, accepting and confident. We are poised to begin a promising new chapter by creating new spaces that reflect the Montessori philosophy and that are focused on optimizing our students’ development. We ask for your partnership with us as we embark on a Capital Campaign that will enrich our campus for generations of students to come.

  • An expanded makerspace
