Our Mission

The mission of St. Augustine Public Montessori School is to provide students with a learning culture grounded in Montessori philosophy and practice that inspires a love of learning and respect for self, others and the environment.

Welcome to Saint Augustine Public Montessori

The St. Augustine Public Montessori School is part of the St. Johns County School District. The school is governed independently by a non-profit organization Board of Trustees, but is accountable to the SJCSD and State Department of Education.

St. Augustine Public Montessori is proud to offer authentic Montessori as a public school choice.

We emphasize the following key Montessori principles:

  • Prepared environment of Montessori materials and curriculum
  • Mixed age classrooms in 3-year spans
  • Student choice of activity and uninterrupted blocks of work time
  • Integrated instruction where all curriculum subjects are connected
  • Individuals work at their own pace, regardless of ability level or age
  • A focus on cooperation rather than competition
  • Active involvement of children, parents, local citizens and organizations
  • Montessori-trained teachers

“We cannot create observers by saying ‘observe’, but by giving them the power 
and the means for this observation.” 
– Dr. Maria Montessori
