A welcoming place that engages each child.

The Montessori School of Herndon (MSH) was established in 1984 and is one of the oldest and best-recognized schools in Herndon, Reston, Sterling, Chantilly, and the Great Falls area. The Montessori School of Herndon inspires excellence without stress by teaching our students to value their own strengths and to make the most of their potential. Our teachers know each child as a learning, growing individual and seek to promote growth for a bright future.

Our Classes

We provide three classes for children between the ages of 12 months and 12 years.

Our classes range from Pre-K to Lower-Elementary because it’s never too early to get ahead. Our class sizes are small enough that each student receives the attention they need but big enough that our students can learn and grow together.

The Education We Provide

Our curriculum strays from the beaten path to engage students at a deeper level by piquing curiosity and building on interests.

Students are faced with challenges from multiple academic lenses in a comprehensive and encompassing approach.

Our goal is to provide avenues for children to gain a developmental edge and prepare them for the rest of their scholastic career.

We recognize that every child is different and aim to incorporate their individuality in the classroom to create rich learning experiences.

Our curriculum focuses on teaching art and science from a young age to improve long term academic success in today’s world.

Montessori School of Herndon is one of the oldest and best recognized educational institutions in Northern Virginia.

Experience why our children are HAPPY to learn!
