Who We Are

Our School

Lamplighter's classrooms flourish with educational commitment through a creative and traditional medium as we encourage an intellectually stimulating environment for our students.

Our school provides an enriching experience with learning activities that purposefully engage each child. We encourage academic curiosity, integrating diverse topics with traditional subject matter. Teachers provide guidance, but every achievement is a student's own. We are dedicated to their future.

We are proud to have Certified Montessori instructors, in accordance with the standards of the American Montessori Society, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and the Southern Association of Independent School, present approved materials and instructions.

Lamplighter Montessori School admits students of any race, creed, national or ethnic origin to all programs and activities made available to students. Lamplighter Montessori School does not discriminate in the administration of its educational policies and programs.

Our History

Since we were founded in 1967 we have achieved accredited academic excellence while offering an educational option to the Memphis community.

Lamplighter Montessori School was privately owned until 1990; it then became a board-run, non-profit organization.

Our programs range from toddler classes (starting at 18 months) through the 8th grade.

Our Location

Lamplighter Montessori School is proudly located on nine wooded acres in Cordova, TN. We are home to a diverse and thriving student body learning the academic, social, and independence skills to prepare for their bright futures.
