Lexington Montessori School is an independent, coeducational, Montessori day school and was founded in 1963 by a group of parents seeking a child-centered education for young children. Based upon the philosophy of Maria Montessori, LMS has grown over the years from a small preschool to a nationally recognized leader in Montessori early childhood and elementary education. LMS currently welcomes over 240 children from many towns and communities in and around the Boston area.
The Lexington Montessori School community works to create an environment that inspires children to develop inner discipline, self-assurance, and a love of learning. We respect the uniqueness of each student by helping each child to develop skills at periods of greatest readiness and sensitivity.
Our program provides a creative and adaptive environment that responds to the needs of the children. We seek to balance academic and social development to foster responsibility and cooperation within a supportive learning community.
