We are one of 18 schools in the United States to hold the highest level of recognition granted by AMI for all of our program levels.

To maintain our Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) recognition, each year we must document our adherence to their standards.  Every three years, we have an in-depth, on-site visit from an AMI consultant to assess the quality and authenticity of our program.  MSGH’s Head of School, Úna Barry, is not only an AMI-certified teacher, she is also a mentor to AMI teachers in training and is an AMI Consultant who assesses other programs seeking to earn or maintain AMI recognition.

When researching a Montessori education for your child, it is important to understand that the term Montessori is not patented; therefore, it can be used freely by anyone.  To find an authentic Montessori education for your child, affiliation with a recognized organization such as AMI is critical. Come visit and see for yourself the AMI difference, and visit AMI’s website for more information about the recognition process and teacher-certification requirements.
