About

Bringing knowledge to life.

Adeline Montessori School provides high quality, personalized instruction for all students. Our experienced, credentialed and state-licensed staff is dedicated to creating a safe, healthy learning environment, especially in this global time of chaos. We are honored and excited to have your family become part of our own.

Our Mission

The Adeline Montessori School (AMS) community of staff, faculty, and families strives to prepare children to become self-motivated by their innate sense of curiosity and encourage them to use critical thinking skills and diplomacy to overcome obstacles.  The AMS community/team will guide students to problem-solve with empathy as they grow to become adults with integrity.

Our Work

At AMS, we work in a collaborative partnership with parents, faculty, and children, to combine the innovative Montessori philosophy and its resulting pedagogy with experiential learning. This transformational approach to education allows our students to become joyful learners of high academic prowess, and encourages their development into caring, respectful, responsible, curious, and compassionate individuals. AMS is a progressive school for children ages 6 weeks to 14 years of age. Children are guided by qualified teachers who embrace the Montessori Philosophy espoused by Maria Montessori and the American Montessori Society. AMS abides by the AMS Code of Ethics and accreditation standards in its administrative and teaching practices. AMS is committed to individualized instruction, appealing to each child’s unique traits, and focusing first on what Maria Montessori recognized as a child’s natural tendency to be a curious, self-motivated, and eager learner. Students are provided a rich and diverse curriculum, steeped in intercultural experiences, and grounded in developmentally appropriate practices.

While every child’s path at AMS will look, feel, and be different, each graduate will be prepared:

  • For a life full of learning opportunities, both in and out of school,
  • With a solid academic and executive function skills foundation,
  • With the social/emotional experiences and knowledge to navigate age-appropriate peer relationships,
  • To contribute to their community and the lives of others.

Programs Offered

We offer programming for children 6-weeks old through 9th grade. Learn more about the different programs we offer. 

By providing a Montessori curriculum that includes English and Foreign Language, Literature, Math (including Geometry and Algebra), political and cultural Geography, Physical and Life Sciences, Music and Movement, Art, and Physical Education, Environmental Studies, as well as Peace and Conflict Resolution, and mindfulness practice, students tackle work that ultimately stretches them beyond that which is typically supported in a conventional classroom by Common Core Standards.

Our teaching faculty, administrative team, and support staff provide a safe, secure environment that feels like an extension of home. Focusing on core values of respect, courtesy, compassion, curiosity, tolerance, and appreciation for differences, the collaborative triad of parents, faculty, and child creates an environment where emotional intelligence and interpersonal skills are recognized as equal in value to academic accomplishment.

Our Charter

Adeline Montessori School is proudly accepting Charter School applications for enrollment under an agreement with the Office of Educational Opportunity. Starting in Fall 2021, 4k – 8th grade will be fully-funded through our charter.

Our History

Adeline Montessori School was established in 2020 in response to the overwhelming interest in Montessori education in southeast Wisconsin. A 3rd generation Montessori student and educator laid the groundwork to create the school and is joined by a team of experienced, dedicated, and thoughtful instructors for programming spanning from birth to 9th grade.

(the “School”) admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the School.  It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

Adeline Montessori School values and welcomes diversity among our children, families, faculty, and within our community.
