Dr. Maria Montessori recognized the limitless potential of children. She noted how their learning would take flight in an environment which met their specific needs and allowed them to learn by doing. Montessori observed the joy of children in discovering themselves and their world.
At the Montessori School of Northern Virginia (MSNV), we want this joy—the delight of discovery—to last a lifetime. By presenting a myriad of rich learning experiences based on the enduring principles of Montessori, MSNV offers a well-rounded, dynamic and inspiring education for your child.
MSNV provides authentic Montessori education for children from toddlers through sixth grade at three campuses: Hillbrook in Annandale and Valleybrook and Sleepy Hollow in Falls Church. In seventh grade students transition into our progressive two-year Middle School Program at Hillbrook. There, students join other adolescents from various independent, public, or Montessori schools in the area. From Preprimary through Middle School, our learning environment is designed to directly benefit their social, emotional, physical and intellectual development. Our students achieve both academic and personal success. The result? You will love school, because our children love learning, love one another and love the world around them.
