Accreditation and Affiliations

Lead classroom teachers hold AMI diplomas and the school meets the standards set by AMI. The school holds a six-year accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), the highest accreditation offered. WASC is one of the seven official regional accreditors responsible for the accreditation of public and private universities, colleges, elementary and secondary schools in the United States, and foreign institutions that originate in the U.S.

MIR and its staff maintain close working relationships with staff and administrators at Montessori schools around the world. They are members of AMI, AMI-USA, AMI-Elementary Alumni Association (AMI-EAA), the Montessori Administrators Association (MAA), North American Montessori Teachers' Association (NAMTA), and other Montessori associations.

Our Partner in Montessori

MIR maintains a close partnership with The Grove School, a public charter Montessori school for grades 7 through 12. Together the schools serve students from 18 months to 18 years old on a single campus, allowing the child to evolve and grow through all stages of Montessori education. Most MIR graduates continue their Montessori education at Grove.
