A private Montessori School located in Darnestown, Maryland

Our mission is to guide children to be independent, resilient, compassionate, socially aware, global thinkers ready to navigate this changing world.


As Head of School, I am inspired by the opportunity to fulfill the unique mission of Butler Montessori, which is guided by the work and writings of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870–1952).

At its core, our philosophy is simple: Follow the child.
