About Mountainside Montessori

Our campus is located on a 10-acre farm in the historic town of Marshall, VA. Our classrooms are designed to incorporate both indoor and outdoor spaces and reflect our mission of environmental stewardship, sustainable agriculture, and free play in nature. Located at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, we are surrounded by some of the most beautiful horse farms in the country, steeped in American history, and just one hour away from our nation’s capital. Mountainside was established in 2003 and is committed to the principles of the Montessori philosophy. We offer a creative, supportive environment that integrates sustainable agriculture, environmental literacy, and free play in nature with a solid academic program. We currently serve children from 18 months to 15 years.
