The Elementary and Adolescent students having a joint class meeting

Now and into the future…

In 2012 IMA opened with a Toddler Program and a Primary Program. Now in 2016–17, we have a Nido (Infant) Program, a Young Children’s Community (“toddler” age), two Primary Classrooms, Lower and Upper Elementary Programs, and an Adolescent Program. Future plans include the first Montessori High School in the Madison area.

Each AMI Montessori program of Isthmus Montessori Academy is specially prepared to ignite the learning process and respond to the developmental needs of each child. Through scientific research, Dr. Montessori recognized specific tendencies and sensitive periods for learning. Each AMI Montessori environment of Isthmus Montessori Academy responds to the human tendencies, sensitive periods for learning, and the unique developmental stages for each child.

We are an authentic Montessori school, giving all our students the opportunity to be in control of their education, ensuring that they pursue their passions, retain what they learn, and stay eager to keep learning.
