When can we come in for a tour?

We do not offer individual tours at this time because we currently have very few openings and an extensive waiting list.  The best time to visit our school is during our Open House which we host each year in February. If we have an opening to fill during the school year, we will directly contact a family from the waiting list to visit our school before they enroll their child.

What qualifications do your teachers have?

We have very highly educated and trained teachers at SMS.   Our teachers and assistants have Bachelor degrees and/ or Master’s degrees in Early Childhood Education. All of our teachers also have Montessori teaching certificates from either the American Montessori Society (AMS) or the Pan American Montessori Society (PAMS).  Both programs are MACTE accredited Montessori teacher education programs.

What is your school calendar?

Our school year runs from the beginning of August until the end of May.  The children will attend 180 school days just as they would in a typical elementary school.  Our school follows a “balanced calendar” which has been adopted by most school districts around the Atlanta area.   We begin our school year a bit early (the first week of August) and include multiple weeks off each school year.  Please visit our calendar to see exact school holidays and closings.
