Montessori Academy in the Community

Montessori Academy of London may seem like a dot on the map compared to the vast network of publically funded schools in the city. But despite our size, we have a huge impact on the community through our unique approach to education that’s equal parts innovation and tradition.

A Montessori education allows children to develop at their own pace while teaching them that independence does not equal isolation. We are all part of a greater community and each one of us can have a positive effect on our world.

Whether we’re raising funds for worthy organizations or partnering with local business to support their success, MA programs support our vision of a community of confident, compassionate and engaged citizens who think globally, act responsibly and collaborate successfully to create a humane world.

Below are some of the many stories that highlight our students’ work in the community.
