Palm Harbor Montessori Academy opened in July 1983.
We offer the highest quality individualized Montessori education experience, focused on fostering independence combined with a sense of community and global awareness. We give this to each child from 12 months to 8th grade.
Montessori is among the fastest growing and most respected methods of education. It was developed in 1907 by Dr. Maria Montessori, the first female physician in Italy and a renowned educator who made great strides in the fields of psychiatry and pediatrics.
Dr. Montessori believed that every child possesses an innate curiosity and love for learning which takes them on a “journey of discovery” in the classroom. A Montessori education produces independent, confident children who are self-sufficient, emotionally balanced, globally aware, environmentally conscious, and respectful of one’s self and others.
