About the School
Edinburgh Montessori Arts School provides complete Montessori education for 1-18 year olds. For children from one year onwards, our Infant Community helps them discover and learn in a calm, supportive setting. From three years old, in Children’s House, all aspects of children's development are addressed and a lifelong love of learning is nurtured.
We are the only Montessori primary and high school in Scotland, and children use the Elementary and Teens classrooms as a base to explore the world, linking learning with real-life experiences.
Our creative arts specialists inspire a plethora of stimulating activities in addition to the opportunities provided by the classroom environments.
