Lamplighter Montessori School has been a trusted leader in education for over 55 years. Accredited by the American Montessori Society, the Southern Association of Independent Schools and Cognia, Lamplighter's commitment to quality elevates the educational experience for every child.

We teach the way children learn. Our school engages students to develop to their full potential by igniting their curiosity, increasing their independence, and developing a sense of responsibility. At Lamplighter Montessori School our emphasis on authentic Montessori for the modern family means each environment is prepared with intention and led by credentialed Montessori teachers who spark wonder and a love for learning while guiding each child through the full complement of Montessori materials.


Our distinctive MakerSpace and Visiting Artist programs inspire ingenuity and sharpen critical thinking skills. A variety of special studies, including Physical Education, Spanish, and Library complete Lamplighter’s comprehensive curriculum.

The Montessori method, grounded in respect for the child, embeds social emotional learning into the child’s everyday living. Mindfulness and growth mindset are intrinsic to the Montessori way, and contribute to the remarkable self-awareness and confidence with which Lamplighter students approach the world. 


Multi-aged classrooms provide the opportunity for deeper relationships to grow over the course of three years. The strong connections forged among families, teachers, and students means the memories made here will last a lifetime. We have the embracing, welcoming community of a small school with the delivery of a world-class education.


Lamplighter Montessori School is accredited by the American Montessori Society, Southern Association of Independent Schools, Cognia, and is monitored by the Department of Education.
