The First Fully Accredited Montessori School in N.M.
Escuela del Sol is fully accredited by the American Montessori Society (AMS), the foremost advocate for quality Montessori education in the country and by the National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA). Our Early Childhood programs are licensed through the State’s Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD) and we are members of the North American Montessori Teachers’ Association (NAMTA).
Escuela is located on 7th street and Mountain in the Northern corner of Albuquerque’s Downtown. Our campus stretches the historic city block that housed the Harwood Girls School. In the last two decades we have steadily expanded and invested in our home to include community resources like the Harwood Art Center, a custom primary school building designed with the help of Escuela 5-year-olds, and and a BIG plan to continue investing in the property and our community over the coming years.
Escuela del Sol Montessori was founded in 1968 in Albuquerque as a parent co-op. Our founding parents sought a school where education enabled their children to be three key things: happy, healthy and well prepared for their future. Parents were – and remain today – an integral part of Escuela’s vision and a focus in our day-to-day service to children and to the community.
