Spruce Tree Montessori School is an independent Montessori school offering traditional Montessori education for children ages 2.5 – 12 years old. Spruce Tree provides an inspiring learning environment using proven Montessori techniques and approved Montessori materials. Our programs are guided by experienced Montessori educators holding Montessori teacher certifications from accredited Montessori teacher training institutions. 

Montessori education nurtures the child’s natural desire to learn. Classrooms are active, but peaceful, engaging yet quiet. Students develop in a self-paced environment where socio-emotional and practical life skills are learned alongside academics.

Spruce Tree Montessori School is affiliated with the American Montessori Society (AMS) as a full-member school and is striving to create a program in compliance with the AMS School Standards and Accreditation Criteria.

Our curriculum provides sound academic background for the establishment of critical thinking, problem solving and cooperative learning skills where enrichment programming in culture, foreign language, art and music are a part of the regular school day. Our goal is to support the development of each child in all areas – academically, socially, physically, and emotionally in an effort to educate the “whole child.”

Montessori represents an entirely different approach to education.

“Spruce Tree is our first Montessori experience. We’ve seen our son develop ownership in the learning process. His ideas are valued and his interests are nurtured. His confidence, self-sufficiency and enthusiasm grow daily. Thank you, Spruce Tree Montessori!” -Aelin Allegood, mother of 1st grade student
