To offer an authentic Montessori environment


Decatur Montessori School, founded in 1993 is a year-round, all-day AMI certified school. We serve children 6 weeks through 6 years located in historic Decatur, an Atlanta suburb. It has been an important part of the community since its inception. Children are the center of our universe. They are the engines that drive our school toward excellence. We work with staff and parents to provide our children with the best possible education and an environment conducive to their overall development.

The school currently offers one Infant class (ages 6 weeks to approx 16 months), two Toddler classes (ages approx 17 months to 32 months) and two Primary classes (ages 33 months to 6 years).

Campus facility

The most outstanding feature of DMS is the home-like feeling that embraces our children upon entering our quaint campus. Unlike traditional brick and mortar or high rise infrastructure, DMS’s spaced cottages provide a home-away-from-home familial set-up where a child feels the warmth of extended home.
