Academics at AIMS
A Montessori education is different. We focus on preparing children for life with an emphasis on knowledge, problem-solving, and creative thinking. Children who study at AIMS are heavily represented in gifted programs, on sports teams and other extracurricular activities. Many have been accepted into competitive independent schools, and many shine in our area's highly rated public schools.
Globally, those who have benefitted from a Montessori education are part of a long tradition. They can be found excelling in many fields, especially those calling for creativity and inventiveness. (The founders of Google, Amazon, and Wikipedia, for starters.)
"The former Montessori students here are shining stars...it is a breath of fresh air to get these students because they are well-developed socially, academically and emotionally."
-Lisa Crowley, Guidance Counselor, Fernandina Beach Middle School
