What Association Montessori International (AMI) Recognition Means
Anami Montessori School enjoys its annually-renewed recognition by both the Association Montessori International (AMI)—the only organization Dr. Maria Montessori initiated to protect her teaching philosophy—as well as by the North Carolina Department of Non-Public Education.The AMI Certificate of Recognition offers credibility to a school’s status not only within the educational community as a whole but also within the Montessori community. AMI recognition is the hallmark of a Montessori school that staunchly supports the Montessori principles and faithfully puts them into practice.
AMI reviews annually the schools criteria for recognition. Every three years, an AMI consultant spends a day at the school, observes in each classroom, and offers feedback to the teachers and director. An extensive report is submitted to AMI.
