School Profile

The faculty and staff of James N. Gamble Montessori High School grades 7-12 are committed to developing students into thoughtful, intelligent and inclusive human spirits. Montessori education is characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological development, as well as technological advancements in society.


Developing a sense of community – with all of the challenges, responsibilities, joys and its preparation for life--is an essential part of our Montessori program. Our school community includes not only students and teachers, but also parents. Parental support and involvement is vital to the success of your student and our program.
