The largest effort ever to collect data on Montessori programs in the United States is underway. The 2013-2014 USA Montessori Census is a collaborative effort between all major Montessori associations in the USA.  

The Montessori School Census will, for the first time, provide authoritative information on the size, location and organization of Montessori education in the USA.   We need your help so that we can answer key questions such as:

How many….
  • Montessori schools are there really in the United States?
  • Montessori schools in the USA are private and how many operate in the public sector?
  • Students do our schools currently serve?
  • Montessori teachers are practicing in the USA?
  • Montessori schools offer programs at infant-toddler, early childhood, elementary, middle school, and high school?
