Welcome to Butler Montessori!
Nestled on 22-acres, our certified Green School provides a home-away-from-home for Preschool, Elementary, and Middle School students. Our students, under the guidance of AMI-certified faculty, develop strong social, emotional, and academic foundations that serve them now and into the future.
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.
Laura Manack, Head of School
"The faculty and staff are so committed to the students and parents. Their love of the school is very obvious."
