Here at The Montessori Institute of San Diego in La Jolla, California we are an AMI training center for Montessori parents, teachers, administrators, and schools.


Our mission for our teachers is to bring the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori's philosophy's and approach to the education of children, to help them attain their full potential in our society.


At MISD, we call teachers “guides” in order to highlight the unique role of the teacher in the Montessori classroom, as opposed to the more traditional teacher role that is prevalent in our society today. You will learn how to treat each individual child with respect, and how to “get out of the way” of the child’s own, self-directed process of discovery.

My son is starting his third year at this school. We recently moved out of the area but continue to commute to the school because we love it so much. The growth we have seen in our son is truly remarkable and I could not imagine him being so well suited anywhere else. The staff are all very friendly and knowledgable and the facility is great. I love being able to drop in and observe unannounced whenever I choose. The skill set which is developed with this program is the best possible gift a parent could bestow upon their child. My son is independent and very capable of dealing with all sort of social interactions. I am confident that this is the best place for our son and any future children will also be attending.

I requested a school tour and the administrator said "he would be better served in another school, as children who are over four without previous Montessori often have difficulty with the structure of our program". They have not even met my son. How could she say so? I asked her to forward the email to the director but she never responded after that.

No matter how sophisticate method one brags about, if the teacher is not loving, caring and with common sense, it fails your young child. Plus, the children pick up the teacher’s attitude and became unkind to others in class. Be aware, MISD also asks you to sign a 10 months contract before your child starts at the school. So if it is not a good fit for your child, you are locked in, unfortunately.
