Located on 10 wooded acres in West Nashville, Abintra Montessori School offers educational opportunities for children from early childhood through middle school.
Founded by a small group of parents, Abintra opened Nashville's first Montessori elementary program to nine elementary students in 1981 as an independent, nonprofit, educational organization. Those parents envisioned a quality educational experience for their children through Dr. Maria Montessori's educational continuum: follow the child's lead, observe to know the child's needs, prepare the learning environment, support the child's effort, respect the child's individuality, and trust in the child's inner workings.
Abintra has now expanded its program to serve 150 students from preschool through eighth grade. Abintra continues to provide all children with a carefully prepared learning environment, a community of fellow learners, and a wide range of quality materials, including the advanced Montessori equipment.
