About Montessori Academy
At MAB, education values the development of the whole child—physical, emotional, social, and cognitive. Known for individually paced learning and fostering independence, we’re encouraging empathy, a passion for social justice, and a love of lifelong learning.
Our mission is to prepare students to be life-long learners and responsible citizens of the world community. Through the use of Montessori methods and philosophy, an individualized approach in multi-age groupings encourages developmentally appropriate learning of academics, social development and life skills.
All children are given the freedom‐in a structured environment that is nurturing, child-centered and supportive‐to develop their gifts and pursue their interests while also learning the incumbent responsibilities.

At Montessori Academy, we believe that if you are making a commitment to our school, we want to make a commitment to you.
I can honestly say that Montessori Academy has been able provide an excellent experience for each one of our 3 very different children. Our oldest is now taking honors classes at a college preparatory high school and scored in the 80th percentile overall on her PSAT, 87th percentile in reading and writing.
We could not be happier with the decision we made to keep our son at Montessori Academy and the investment we made in his education. He was challenged throughout the curriculum and received all the support he needed to graduate with a high academic standing and a deep sense of humanity.
I HIGHLY recommend Montessori Academy of Broward to anyone and everyone interested in giving the gift of a great all-around foundation to their kids. My daughter has thrived here not just academically, but emotionally as well. Montessori is not just a school—it's a family.
There are so many things I love about Montessori–from little things like EVERY teacher knowing EVERY child and their parents (and sometimes grandparents) by name to the safe, clean and professional learning environment they with all the tools they could want to prosper in their academic life, at their own pace.
Our son is now a happy young man who knows that he received the tools he needed to succeed and accomplish his dream of obtaining an academic scholarship at American Heritage High School. Not only did he get accepted into the honors program at an elite high school, but the rest of his graduating class did as well.
