Lexington Montessori School was founded in 1963 by a group of parents seeking a child-centered education for their young children. Based on the philosophy of Maria Montessori, LMS has grown over the years from a small preschool to a nationally recognized leader in Montessori early childhood, elementary and middle school education. LMS welcomes children from a wide range of towns and communities in and around the Boston area.

Our school encompasses four acres of play yards and school buildings as well as 19 acres of undeveloped woods and wetlands. Serving children ages toddler through middle school, LMS works to maintain and strengthen a diverse student and faculty community and is fully committed to the anti-bias and DEIJB work that is embedded into our curriculum at all levels. We would love to show you around our campus and for you to feel what it would be like to be a part of our community.

LMS is no ordinary school. It is a community where children learn to be themselves, learn to be friends… all while learning how to learn, and engage in the world around them.
