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
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.
Montessori was something we always wanted for our children but was beyond our reach financially... until now.  FSMA has given us an option that we never thought was feasible.  Thank you, FSMA!

FSMA values the opportunity for children to be outside in fresh air and exercising throughout the winter months. Our goal is […]

Thinking Outside of the Box!

Middle School Science classes were definitely being forced to think outside of the box as they participated in an escape-room-style educational challenge designed to get kids to work together and use what they’ve learned in class in an “out of the box” way. A story sets up the mission and then groups had to use […]
