The Knoxville Montessori School is a nonprofit private school that provides high-quality Montessori education in a supportive, nurturing environment to students from Preschool through 5th Grade.

For most children, Montessori is the most natural and enjoyable way to learn – and since its founding in 1966, KMS has been widely recognized as one of Knoxville’s best Montessori schools.

Why Montessori?

Most Montessori students love going to school, and they often move ahead more quickly, and understand what they learn more fully, than students in conventional schools. For most children it is the most natural and enjoyable way to learn.

Our Program

KMS provides an integrated curriculum for students beginning in preschool and progressing through 5th grade. Our classes are designed to help children move naturally from one level to the next while building their skills and self-confidence.
