Why The Young School is So Special

“Free the child’s potentialand you will transform him into the world.”

Maria Montessori


The Young School is part of a worldwide Montessori community who believe that all children have an inherent passion for learning, and that teachers have a unique opportunity to fuel that passion into a lifelong pursuit. Rather than view education as something with a series of short-term goals, Montessori exercises a long-term holistic approach. Students learn to think critically, work collaboratively and act boldy.

The Young School is a small Independent Montessori for children in grades 1st through 6th. Our one room school house has been the best kept secret in the heart of the Napa Valley for over 25 years!
