The American Montessori Society (AMS) is the foremost advocate for quality Montessori education, an innovative, child-centered approach to learning. AMS sets the high professional standards that inform Montessori education as practiced in AMS-accredited schools and taught in AMS-affiliated teacher education programs.
About the Conference
With each passing year, new schools open in both the private and public sectors, more and more states recognize the efficacy of our pedagogy, and Montessori philosophy continues to proliferate in countries around the world. As our movement swells, so does our annual gathering. AMS is committed to bringing our unique tribe together each year for days filled with exploration, discovery, discussions, research, and enthusiasm. Come meet friends old and new to celebrate our successes, identify and confront our challenges, and plan for opportunities that lie ahead—in our schools, in our growing Montessori communities, and out in the larger world.
