The Montessori School of
Fort Smith Arkansas
Creating Competent, Confident and Compassionate Leaders for Tomorrow
Providing An Unparallelled Education
Since 1969, The Montessori School of Fort Smith (formerly St. Scholastica Montessori School) has offered an unparalleled education. As the only Montessori school in the River Valley, and one of two in the entire state to either be accredited (Walnut Farm Montessori) or working towards accreditation (Step 6 of 10), we offer parents the opportunity to invest not only in their child’s education, but in their child.
Our talented faculty, nurturing environment, and commitment to the Montessori method of learning make us the school of choice for many families in the Fort Smith area. We offer consistent, quality education for children ages 3 years to 12 years.
Montessori students are confident, competent learners who are intrinsically motivated.
They are academically prepared, creative and able to communicate effectively. Our students learn far more than the required Arkansas or Oklahoma curricular benchmarks. Montessori students are well prepared for the next phase in their lives.
“Education is a natural process carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment.” – Dr. Maria Montessori
