Villa Montessori School was founded in 1964 by a group of parents looking for a new model for educating their children. As the first Montessori school in Phoenix, Villa has been recognized for more than 40 years as a leader in providing a quality education focusing on the unique talents of each child.
Villa's program is based on a well-developed Montessori curriculum and philosophy. The integrated curriculum is supplemented with numerous extracurricular programs and resources that stimulate and enrich the child's learning experience. These include individually guided education, outdoor environments, a land lab, foreign language, fine arts, and sports.
Today, Villa educates children from the age of twelve weeks through the eighth grade. The School is comprised of a private and a charter school. The private school serves children from infants to five years and offers extended day and enrichment programs to the charter school's students. The charter school serves children from kindergarten through eighth grade.
