Lloyd Barbee Montessori School offers students in grades K3-6 the opportunity for a high-quality Montessori education in a vibrant, nurturing environment. The Montessori method of educating students is based on the philosophy that children reach their fullest potential through multi-age interactions in an inquiring, cooperative, and encouraging atmosphere. Staff focuses on fostering competent and responsible students who demonstrate creativity, concentration, coordination, and independence in their work. Barbee offers an arts program that includes visual arts, music, instrumental lessons, and an after-school drama program. These programs offer opportunities for students in the arts which broaden cultural experiences. Students and staff are also working with Growing Minds to empower students with mindfulness strategies to help build social emotional well being.

Prior Montessori experience is required for students entering at grade K5 or higher. Families can enroll in this school for grades K3 and K4 using the online application at
