American Montessori Society (AMS)
Gateway International Montessori School is a member of the American Montessori Society (AMS).
American Montessori Society (AMS) is a vibrant community of schools, teachers, teacher education programs, families, and friends determined to make Montessori a strong and positive force in education throughout the world.
Founded in 1960 by Dr. Nancy McCormick Rambusch, AMS set out to revive American interest in Montessori education, which had briefly flourished in the early part of the 20th century. The organization crafted a uniquely American approach to Montessori, and soon drew educators, scholars, parents, and others eager to embrace the Montessori method.
Fifty years later and counting, the American Montessori Society is an active, committed body of many thousands whose members give freely of their time, knowledge, creativity, and experience, year after year, on behalf of excellence in education.
