Accreditation

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

Brookview Montessori School has begun the process of becoming accredited by the American Montessori Society.  We are currently a Full Member of AMS, a designation that is an honor in itself, requiring a Montessori-credentialed teacher in every classroom, three-year age groupings beginning in the Primary years, and other hallmarks of authenticity in Montessori education. 

 

Accreditation is a two-year process involving an intensive self-study, which our faculty, board, and parent volunteers have begun.  We are hoping for a visit next Spring from the AMS Accreditation Committee.  The whole process is designed to assist high quality Montessori schools to achieve an even higher level of excellence.  Currently, only 3 schools in the State of Michigan have been accredited by the AMS.
