Our school is special. It’s a place where students, teachers and parents feel at home. It’s a place where we learn, grow, discover and achieve together. It’s a place that takes great care in cultivating the limitless potential of every student.

Established in 1999, we were one of the first Montessori schools in the Las Vegas Valley. Our campus is located in a safe and thriving community in Henderson, Nevada, and serves ages 3-14. We hope you come by for a visit. You can tour our inviting, dynamic classrooms, meet our staff, and experience the inspiring atmosphere for yourself. See you then!


Foothills Montessori School is a private school, officially founded in 1999. One of the first Montessori schools in the Las Vegas valley, it grew from 15 students to approximately 310, and in 2004 it added a middle school in addition to its thriving primary and lower elementary programs. Many students enroll in preschool and remain until graduation, going on to become successful alumni. Our campus has also expanded and now proudly features such enhancements as an amphitheatre, multi-purpose room and state-of-the-art science playground.
