Finding the right school for your child is one of the most important and challenging decision you will make as a parent. The Montessori School of San Antonio provides a Primary through Middle School program that offers students freedom and support to shape their own rich, individual educational experience. MSSA honors diversity across ages, gender, religions, and cultural backgrounds.


MSSA offers limitless academic challenges to students. The school employs well-trained Montessori teachers who guide and support each child’s individual progress and value children for their unique gifts and strengths as they follow through the Montessori curriculum. As a Montessori school, the Primary through Upper Elementary classrooms are led by a Montessori trained teacher/guide. The teachers at these levels have the following Montessori certifications: two are AMI (American Montessori International), five are AMS (American Montessori Society), two are Southwestern Montessori Training Center (MACTE), and two have North American Montessori Center certificates. Also, 41 percent of our classroom assistants have Montessori certification.


To compliment a respectful school climate, MSSA has established curriculum, programs, admissions, financial assistance, and hiring systems that respect all facets of diversity: race, national origin, creed, age, gender, socioeconomics, sexual orientation, and ability.

“There is a great sense of community within the Montessori classroom, where children of differing ages work together in an atmosphere of cooperation rather than competitiveness. There is respect for the environment and for the individuals within it, which comes through experience of freedom within the community.” – Maria Montessori
