Thank you for your interest in Little Lyceum! In 1997, while pursuing secondary education as a career path, I stumbled upon the Montessori method in my reading. After further investigation, I was simultaneously convinced of the efficacy of Maria's pedagogy and dismayed by its relative unavailability. So I decided to found a school of my own! Welcome to what has become of that vision. Many parents who join our school do so because they are committed to a high-quality educational experience for their children. I invite you to schedule a personalized tour with me of our unique facilities, so you can take a peek into our classrooms and envision how your child's education could take off with our Montessori programs.
