Welcome to the Montessori School of Maui

The Montessori School of Maui, founded in 1978, began by serving just 8 students in a simple Quonset hut beside St. Rita’s Church in Haiku. Over the years the organization has evolved to a lovely 9-acre campus serving over 260 students, from 18 months to 8th grade, and is currently experiencing its highest attendance to date.

The school employs a collaborative learning environment, based upon the time-honored principles developed by Dr. Maria Montessori over 100 years ago and refined by generations of dedicated teachers, designed to stimulate each student's critical thinking skills, cultivate inquisitive minds and empower children to actively participate in the rapidly changing environment of the twenty first century.

The Montessori teaching methodology is uniquely based upon observation, peer learning, tactile learning materials and intrinsic motivation. Within each classroom, multiple grades or levels of students are combined, creating an environment whereby students serve as leaders for one-another. These elements all come together to create a truly distinctive and remarkable approach to education.
