This young lady is erecting a set of blocks; a part of our Sensorial Curriculum which is designed to help her focus her attention more carefully on the physical world, exploring with each of her senses the subtle variations in the properties of objects.

This little cutie is opening and closing boxes of different shapes. The purpose of the blindfold is to find the lid of each box without seeing. Once she closes them, she'll place them back in the bowl. #Montessori

We believe in instilling the love of learning in your child. By doing so at an early age, your child will have a strong foundation for learning in later years.

MAS incorporates a Montessori environment in our classroom which encourages children to explore and rewards their curiosity. Children from ages 2 through 6 are kept in a family like setting in which younger students learn from older students. In turn, the older students' knowledge of a subject is solidified even further by teaching the younger students.

Enrichment classes are offered including:
  • Spanish as a second language
  • Music
  • Children's Yoga
  • Art
  • Art History

I highly recommend this school. The teachers are fantastic. The class instruction is organized and the instruction plan is true to the Montessori teachings, unlike other pre-schools which claim to be Montessori. Our children have been attending the school since 08' and I can tell you there is little to none teacher turn-over. The school provides a safe, loving and secure environment. Our children absolutely love attending this school. And on a last note, the music program offered is amazing.

My son Daniel went to Montessori American School for two years and he loved everything about it. Miss Yoli is an incredible teacher. Daniel came out of the school with excellent learning skills particularly in math and reading, as well as in geography. I especially admire Miss Norma, the art teacher, she instilled in my son a huge love for her art class, he would wake up excited about having art and come home with beautiful drawings. I know my son misses his school, his friends and his teachers.

We recently moved to Bonita, CA from Orange County, CA. Our 3-year-old daughter had been enrolled in an exceptional Montessori school in Orange County (LePort Schools). I was nervous about her transition and did not know if I could find a school to measure up to the high standards of LePort. After much research, and meeting with the Director, I decided to enroll our daughter at the Montessori American School in Chula Vista. I am so pleased with my decision! My daughter is very eager to go to school each morning. She enjoys this school so much, and I can only credit her happiness to the amazing staff at Montessori American. The entire staff is kind and loving, and genuinely cares about these children. Our daughter's teacher, Miss Araceli, is exceptional. She has continued to spark a love of learning in our daughter, who came home the other day from school and announced that she lives in the United States of America. She also knew the names of other countries. This school is a little gem, and I'm so glad I found it! If you want to give your child the life-long gift of the love of learning, then enroll them at this school.

Our daughter just completed her first year at the Montessori American School and we could not be more pleased with our decision to send her here. As working parents, we try to be realistic about the amount of time that we have to consistently teach our daughter the skills that she needs to be successful when she enters school. So when searching for a pre-school, curriculum and a focus on education were top on our list. We really feel that children our sponges at this age and if given the opportunity will soak up all that there is to offer. The curriculum that this school follows is absolutely amazing. She has been developing exceptional skills in geography, early math and reading preparation. The instruction she receives and the teachers dedication to inspiring pre-schoolers to learn far surpasses any expectations that we had. As if the instruction was not enough, the staff is amazing! All of the teachers are so positive and it is completely apparent how much they care for the children. Ms. Edith, the school’s director, is completely committed to providing a warm and nurturing environment for children. She has done an amazing job staffing the school with teachers that are just as committed. Beyond our happiness with the school is our daughter’s, which is most important. She cannot wait to leave for school every morning. We are absolutely thrilled to have found an environment that is allowing our daughter to flourish and preparing her for her future education, while at that same time providing her an opportunity to have fun with the friends she has made. We look forward to watching her continued development as she continues her pre-school years at this school. We highly recommend the Montessori American School. Sincerely, AJ and Erin Jackson

We absolutely love this school. Our daughter has been going for a year now and has never once wanted to not go to school. The teachers, programs, and facility are wonderful. Our friends that have children that are close to the same age as our daughter always comment on how far along she is in her language, counting, and social skills. I am amazed everyday of the things she learns and wants to learn more about. Thank you Montessori American School!!

I have absolutely NO regrets or complaints about this amazing school. My two daughters both attended the Montessori American School for three years and graduated from the school. The teachers are incredible and it has such a personal feeling for the children due to the perfect size of the facility. My girls are now 6/8 and talk daily about how they miss the school and can't wait to go visit. They left the facility with a stupendous education and transitioned into their next school with flying colors. I would not do one day of it over! Thanks you do much Mrs. Edith and staff!
