ACCREDITATION & AFFILIATIONs
Montessori In Town is fully recognized by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), an international organization founded in 1929 by Dr. Maria Montessori to ensure the quality of her work. This ensures that the program follows the guidelines established by Dr. Montessori for quality in all aspects, including the classroom design, materials, furniture, student-teacher ratios, age mix, and qualifications held by teachers. This also ensures the school's credibility within the AMI community locally, nationally and internationally. A triennial reaccreditation process ensures that AMI accredited adhere to the philosophy of Dr. Montessori's principles.

The school also holds the status of Accredited with Quality from the Georgia Accrediting Commission (GAC). Since its beginning in 1904 the mission of the Commission has been to establish standards promoting instruction of high quality for children in Georgia and encourage schools to meet these standards.

In addition to state and national accreditations, Montessori In Town is committed to active participation in the local Montessori community. The school is a member of Montessori Administrators of Georgia (MAG), a group founded upon the desire to grow and better communicate Maria Montessori’s philosophies. MAG offers a network of experienced Montessori administrators the opportunity to work together to strengthen our existing schools and to mentor newer and beginning schools.
