About Our School
International Montessori School – Auburn

Where Diversity Matters


Our Philosophy


At International Montessori School – Auburn, our philosophy is based on the pioneering work of Dr. Maria Montessori. Dr. Montessori believed that no human being is educated by another person; he or she must do it by him or herself, or it will never be done. She believed that the goal of early childhood education should not be to fill the child with facts but rather to cultivate the child’s own natural desire to learn.

The Montessori environments at IMS – Auburn are specifically designed to support each child’s independence and passions and the curriculum ensures the child’s progression through math, language, geography, arts, and sciences through an enticing and scientifically proven method. Our program creates a framework for children to grow while acquiring knowledge about and learning to value different cultures of the world. We foster this growth with a Spanish-speaker in each classroom and by featuring monthly cultural presentations.
