Oak Hill Montessori is accredited by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI). AMI is the original teacher training organization founded by Dr. Maria Montessori in 1929. Accreditation by AMI lends integrity to our school programming, assuring that we maintain the highest quality pedagogical standards.
The AMI school recognition program was developed to assist parents in their search for quality schools adhering to the standards established by AMI. The accreditation process includes a self-study and consultation at each level every three years. Montessori experts at their respective levels of training and/or consulting head these consultations.
To be eligible for this accreditation, a school must have the following:
- At least one teacher holding an AMI diploma for each class
- Children of mixed ages in the classroom (0-3, 3-6, 6-9, 9-12, 12-14)
- A complete set of Montessori materials
- A philosophical approach consistent with AMI training
An AMI Certificate of Recognition offers credibility to a school's status within the educational community as a whole, as well as within the Montessori community, and it confirms a staunch support of Montessori principles faithfully put into practice.Other
