Welcome to Admissions

Dear Prospective Montessori Families,

Thank you for your interest in Shrewsbury Montessori School. We are delighted you are inquiring about the Shrewsbury Montessori School experience and its vibrant community. You have discovered a school where students truly love to learn! Staff and faculty are dedicated to partnering with families. They guide children to reach their potential while helping them gain the skills and experience they need to be competent, independent, responsible, and respectful contributors to society. We are pleased to introduce you to our educational philosophy and school community in hopes that our school might be a match for your child and family.

Shrewsbury Montessori School, founded in 1972, is celebrating its forty-fifth year of educating children under the principles and teaching methods of Dr. Maria Montessori. Since it’s start, SMS has grown in many ways, but has remained committed to providing children with an enriching and authentic Montessori education.

We are excited to announce that we have expanded and now have three locations in Auburn, Shrewsbury, and Worcester. Our school is fully accredited by the American Montessori Society (AMS) and the Association of Independent Schools of New England (AISNE).

Our website is a great way to learn more about our school, but nothing compares to actually seeing it in action. I invite you to tour the Auburn, Shrewsbury, or Worcester Campus during the school day. You will witness SMS teachers who nurture, follow, and respect each child for who they are, and the children who are engaged in purposeful work in a peaceful, calm, and caring environment. We look forward to welcoming you in person. Experience for yourself the joy of learning that happens at Shrewsbury Montessori School.
