Since 1984, GMA has worked to provide students with an authentic, quality Montessori educational experience. From our convenient location on the Country Club Plaza, our students benefit from Kansas City’s finest art museums, parks and other cultural gifts just outside our door.
Global Montessori Academy upholds the highest standards of a true Montessori education.
GMA is currently pursuing a rigorous, multi-year certification process through the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), founded in 1929 “to maintain the integrity of her [Montessori's] life’s work, and to ensure that it would be perpetuated after her death.” Through its certification and teacher training, AMI strives to maintain the principles of Dr. Montessori and thereby help students worldwide to reach their full potential in society. We currently offer three primary classrooms and one lower elementary classroom each lead by a certified Montessori teacher and classroom assistant. We also have one classroom for our toddler program, which can have up to 16 children from age 2–3, lead by three teachers with over 30 years of combined childcare experience.
