Welcome from the Head of School

Each day I see children running to class, eager to begin their discoveries, chase their creative endeavors and let their curiosity guide them.  It is this type of unfettered joy for learning that flows naturally throughout all class levels at Springmont.  It is natural, unbridled and contagious!

Our wooded 7-acre campus encompasses class gardens rife with learning potential along with animal life and even an outdoor education specialist.  This is not school as you knew it!  Once inside the classrooms you will notice beautiful environments and materials, and teachers with a wealth of knowledge and warmth to help guide your child to his/her fullest potential.

As the first Montessori school in the Southeast, Springmont has a long legacy of preparing children for Atlanta’s premier private schools such as Atlanta Girls’ School, Atlanta International School, The Galloway School, The Lovett School, Mount Vernon Presbyterian School, Pace Academy and The Paideia School.  Our Montessori approach along with our diverse community, investment in students’ personal development as well as their academic strengths is the foundation on which our reputation is built. 

I thank you for your interest in Springmont and encourage you to schedule a tour to see our core values in action.  We can help you reach your goals for your child’s education.
