Montessori ONE Academy is the only AMI-recognized (Association Montessori International/USA), authentic Montessori preschool and elementary school in Albuquerque. Children at Montessori ONE Academy are encouraged to explore, investigate and fulfill their natural curiosity about the world around them.

"First you are captivated by the brand new, bright, state-of-the-art facility itself. Then you are captivated by the director, Tina Patel, and her obvious passion for children, for education, and for using design and environment to enhance the "Prepared Environment" which is a cornerstone of the Montessori approach to education. If you happen to come by for a tour at the right time, you may even catch a glimpse of the preschool yoga class!"
Montessori One has created a very meaningful, high-quality distance learning program. During this Covid-19 pandemic, for our family, in-person classroom learning is not an option. As my grandson begins his 4th grade studies, I am particularly pleased with his teacher and the great degree of enthusiasm and focus on learning that she brings to class each day. It is very gratifying to watch as all the on-line students gather each morning and prepare to work—they are challenged to their fullest abilities. I know this year will be very successful for my grandson because he is so eager to join the class every day and begin to master the curriculum. Thank you for assuring that he will continue to flourish and grow through your very innovative distance learning program.
"We have had our daughter there about a year. We have been very happy with her teachers and Tina. It's everything we hoped for in a school and we look forward to our son starting this summer. Thank you to all at Montessori ONE!"
"Adam and I are so pleased with how well Luke has done this year. The work you have done with him to build his trust and self-confidence, his ability to make friends and interact with his peers is extraordinary. We commend your tireless effort! Our family feels so lucky to have you [Mr. Farren] as Luke's teacher. We think that you have demonstrated a deep knowledge of the Montessori Method and you have really helped us to see its benefits. I have never seen Luke hug any of his teachers before! The other day when you sat down next to him at his cubby and he leaned over and hugged you was monumental to me. Thank you for teaching our son and giving him the freedom of choice and independence!"
"A question most parents struggle with early on is the question of child care. When my husband and I were faced with this decision as our daughter approached her first birthday and I needed to return to work, the process of finding a preschool felt daunting and overwhelming. We wanted the time our daughter spent away from us to be spent in an environment that was supportive, affirming and challenging. We didn’t want a daycare; we wanted a school. We visited many programs in Albuquerque, and I left each one feeling disappointed and wondering if I should just quit my job and stay home with my daughter. Then we discovered Montessori ONE Preschool Academy. When you observe a classroom at Montessori One, you observe a unique child-centered environment. You see a collaborative partnership between the expertise of the child and the guidance of the teacher, passionate educators who have an understanding of every child’s individual development and who have done so much to foster our girls’ growing independence and potential. Knowing that our children are in this stimulating environment during the day and seeing the incredible social and educational growth resulting from the time spent at Montessori ONE fills me with overwhelming gratitude."
