Welcome to Greenbrier Montessori School

An independent school for preschoolers through elementary age

Creative Classroom Design

The design and flow of the Montessori classroom create a learning environment that accommodates choice.

Multiage Groupings

A Montessori class is composed of students whose ages typically span 3 years. This forges a stable community and meaningful bonds between members.

Caring Community

The Montessori classroom radiates harmony and respect. Members address each other respectfully and in modulated tones. There is a busy hum of activity, yet also a profound respect for silence.

Uninterrupted Work Blocks

Working within parameters set by their teachers, students are active participants in deciding what their focus of learning will be.


We know that your child is different.

That's why most of the day, we allow students to work on their own individual lessons, at their own pace, and using the method that works best for them… Not the entire class!
It's just one of the many ways we're different from other private schools.
At Greenbrier Montessori School, we strive to teach children to love learning, through a comprehensive curriculum that adheres to the basic standards of the Montessori Method of Education.
