The Montessori Difference

The mission of First State Montessori Academy is to create successful, contributing, life-long learners in a Montessori public educational program for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade.

First State Montessori Academy will provide parents and students with an authentic, time-tested, Montessori education in a public school. We believe that the creation of a Montessori public school in New Castle County, DE will improve student learning, allow for greater choice for parents, and serve as a model for alternative approaches to education by providing a proven and innovative teaching and learning environment.

Some of Our Proud Parents
FSMA has proven over and over and over again how it doesn’t just have to be us worrying about our kids. Everyone there has gone above and beyond to always be one step ahead of our own personal concerns.
We were extremely fortunate to get into this school. What we did not know is how much FSMA would exceed our expectations.
We continue to be grateful for the absolutely wonderful environment you have created for all children.  I truly believe that you do helps to make the world a better place.
I wish I could have learned in an environment like this... I can only imagine what doors would have been opened and interests would have been peaked.

Often we hear about getting back to regular routines and bedtimes, and these are very important tips, but we also wanted to share a few other [...]

Kindness Month

Kindness, by definition, is the quality of being friendly, generous and considerate (and [...]

Counselor’s Corner

Welcome to the new school year!  It’s hard to believe, but another school year is underway. Laura Schwait and Carla Broadway, the school counseling and behavior support team, are looking forward to once again seeing familiar faces (behind the masks!) as well as the new ones. We would like to share some of the programs the [...]

The Last Day of School

The last day of school… unless you are or have been an educator, you can never understand the emotions we feel on this day each year. We spend 9 months (and sometimes longer if we get to have them for multiple years) learning everything about our students.  We know how to read their mood the [...]
