AMS/MACTE Accreditation Assistance
Being accredited by the American Montessori Society is a process that many schools undertake to show their commitment to continuous school improvement. By complying with AMS Standards and undergoing a comprehensive self-study process, a school is able to validate its promise that it effectively implements the Montessori ideals and standards.
Although the real value of being accredited comes through the rigorous self-study process as it achieves and maintains accreditation. It is this self-study process that defines discovery and empowerment. The school’s self-study turns the focus on its community and its own philosophy as an entity. Done correctly, a school will ultimately have a strong self-evaluation and a strategic plan that nurtures continuing improvement. Ultimately our AMS approved consultants will help your school comply with the rigorous standards for American Montessori Schools and the six essential qualities identified as the essence of the educational nature of Montessori education. The essential qualities are:
1. The Montessori Learning Environment
2. Montessori’s Learning Activities
3. Montessori Learning Relationships
4. Montessori Spirituality
5. What the Montessori Teacher Is
6. What the Montessori Teacher Does
