Greene Towne Montessori School
Greene Towne Montessori School instills in young children an understanding of learning as a personal process, a sense of agency in building self and community, and the joy of possibility. Greene Towne is accredited by the American Montessori Society and the PA Association of Independent Schools.
Greene Towne was founded by a small group of families dedicated to the Montessori method. Doors opened in the fall of 1966 at Saint Clement's Church with the goal to have a "racially, religiously, and economically integrated school." Greene Towne Montessori has been an integral part of the fabric of the Center City neighborhood it calls home, fostering a carefully considered learning environment for Philadelphia’s children.
