Montessori School of Louisville (MSL) was founded in 2006 by a group of Montessori parents and educators committed to supporting the growth of Montessori education in the Metro Louisville area. MSL opened its doors with just 28 students and now, in just over a decade, is serving almost 200 students from toddler through the eighth grade.  MSL is one of only three American Montessori Society (AMS) accredited schools in Kentucky and is the only Montessori school in the state that holds dual accreditation with AMS and SACS CASI (Southern Association of Colleges & Schools Council on Accreditation and Continuous Improvement).

MLS’s mission is to ignite the child’s innate love of learning in a diverse and nurturing community by integrating authentic Montessori philosophy with contemporary, research-based educational methods. MSL’s vision is to empower each individual to make knowledgeable, responsible, and peaceful contributions to the global community.

The Board of Directors is entrusted with the development of MSL according to its founding purpose and assumes ultimate responsibility for its operations.  The board membership is skills based and is in need of board members with the following background/experience:

  • Accounting
