In a world of rapid change...

In a world of rapid change and new discoveries, we can only guess at the skills our children will need to succeed in the 21st century. Now, more than ever, the essential lesson is learning how to learn. Abner Montessori School offers students a world-class education based on the Montessori approach to learning by building on the observation that children learn most effectively through direct experience and the process of investigation and discovery. Abner's goal is to nurture a child's intelligence, self-confidence, personal creativity and independence, and to help our students come to love learning as they begin to discover their true potential during the most important years of their education.

How did our school get the name "Abner"?

How did our school get the name "Abner"?
The name Abner comes from the Old Testament in the Bible. In First and Second Samuel you will find that Abner was the chief officer of Saul's army. He was also present when David fought and defeated the giant Philistine warrior, Goliath. The name Abner means, "My father is a lamp." The name Abner provides the vision of a path being lit on a journey. We want to partner with you as we light the path for your child on their journey through the early education years. We use the sun (a source of light) in our logo and have adopted the slogan, "Shining Light on Life Building Experiences." We hope to be a source of light in the development of your child.
