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. Under the guidance of our AMI-recognized Montessori teachers, children develop at their own pace and learn that school and learning can be a fun and exciting adventure... thus creating lifelong learners.
"Montessori is not for everyone. But if you are looking for an exceptional education for your child Montessori ONE is the place to be. The staff is held to high standards, with great educational backgrounds, and the director, Tina Patel, works hard at covering every aspect of running a school. The school is based upon work, but during the summers the school offers cultural experiences that most children this age are not exposed to. It is an AMAZING school if you are looking for an academic environment for your child and to prepare them for their many years in school. Research says that this age is the most significant for children, and that they are like sponges at this young of an age."
"Montessori ONE is a rare AUTHENTIC Montessori program, and its director, Tina Patel, runs it like a business, where the parents and the kids are the customers! Love that! She has a passion for instilling a love of learning in the kids. Visit and you will see what a special place it is."
"I could not be happier with the professionalism, nurturing atmosphere and flexibility of both the staff and the director of this school. I also completely disagree with another reviewer who states that children are pushed academically at this school. I have two older children and anyone who knows about child development can tell you that children are naturally curious and can grasp many concepts (such as division) a lot earlier than most traditional schools will have you believe. In conclusion, I feel very comfortable with this school and appreciate the information I was given."
"Montessori ONE is a fantastic place for children to grow… My children have learned everything from life skills, such as cleaning and preparing food to the fundamentals of the sciences and arts. I am confident that when my children graduate, they will be prepared for the challenges that lie ahead."
"Montessori ONE Academy has set the standard for what preschool education can be and for what can be accomplished when a parent invests in early education."
