Bloomington Montessori is a member of multiple professional organizations, including the Indiana Non-Public Education Association, United Montessori Schools of Indiana, and American Montessori Society. We take our role as a collaborative and active member of the educational community very seriously. For example, a staff representative serves as an officer on the UMSI board, and we serve and support boards of various other non-profit and service organizations in the community. We are also registered as an International Peace Site and recognized as a Certified Wildlife Habitat.
We are “Step 9” recognized by the American Montessori Society, which attests that we have qualified teachers, an authentic and appropriate curriculum, and strong non-profit and governance structure. We are currently in the process of finalizing “Step 10” (full accreditation). We actively seek external review and collaboration to assure that we are on a path of high-fidelity and continuous improvement.
