MMS proud to be a full member AMS school


Mountaineer Montessori School is proud to be a full member of the American Montessori Society.

Full level membership requires that all classroom lead teachers hold Montessori credentials for the level(s) they are teaching. The credential must be issued by a teacher education program accredited by the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE).

Mountaineer Montessori is the only AMS full member school in West Virginia and the only to be led by a certified AMS Montessori Administrator.

The American Montessori Society (AMS) is the foremost advocate for quality Montessori education, setting the professional standards that inform Montessori education as practiced in AMS-accredited schools and taught in AMS-affiliated teacher education programs.
A not-for-profit organization based in New York City, with nearly 13,000 members worldwide, AMS is also a hub of all things Montessori: an information center for its members, the media, and the public; a voice in the public policy arena; and a mobilizing force for the global Montessori community, through support services, research, and professional development events.
