"The secret to good teaching is to regard the child's intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of flaming imagination." -Dr. Maria Montessori

In June 2010, The Marlowe School opened in a storybook cottage on Paces Ferry Place (above). In May 2018, we celebrated our last school year at our location in Tuxedo Park and moved our sweet school to the Miami Circle design district.
As a fourth generation AMI trained Montessori teacher, Kristin comes from a long line of Montessorians. The Marlowe School is named after her mother whose school was always unofficially and lovingly referred to as Ms. Marlowe's School.
The Marlowe School is proud to be an AMS Full Member School.
