100 years of Montessori in Pasadena

From my Montessori Google news feed (which I wrote about here), an article from the Pasadena Star-News about the 100th birthday of the Aria Montessori School, founded in 1913, visited by Maria Montessori in 1915, and alma mater to prominent Montessori graduate Julia Child.

This has got to be the oldest continuously operating Montessori school in the country, although (per the article) neither AMI nor AMS could confirm the claim.  The school website does not mention an affiliation with any Montessori organization, and doesn’t say much about the background of the administration or teachers.

Still, a pretty remarkable milestone.

  1. This used to be a great Montessori school. Sadly, it was sold a few years ago. Now they only “do Montessori” for an hour a day.
