Hope Montessori Academy at Wildwood is an American Montessori Society member which provides an expansive Montessori environment where our focus is on your child. The primary goal of our school is to aid in the academic, physical, social, and emotional development of our students. Our certified Montessori teachers create safe, nurturing, and creative learning environments which encourages exploration, experimentation, and discovery. The Montessori curriculum is tailored to meet the needs and interests of each individual learner which builds independence, confidence, self-discipline, and a love of learning.

The Wildwood campus is located on Clayton road. We have several indoor and outdoor amenities. The interior of our school houses a library, an art studio, and a carpeted gymnasium where student assemblies, plays, all school celebrations, parent workshops, and guest speakers take place. Each classroom has large exterior windows which let in natural light and spectacular views of the gardens and grounds. From the large windows in the central hallway, parents can observe their children hard at work in the classroom. Outside, we have many opportunities for nature exploration and learning on our beautiful nature trails and nature playground and in the classroom and school gardens. The playgrounds, soccer field, basketball court, bicycle paths and summer swimming lessons at the pool support the growing bodies of our students.
