Tours and Observations

Scheduled Classroom Tours

The Santa Clara campus offers a weekly classroom tour each Friday at 1:15 pm (except when we are closed or have a minimum day). For details, contact the Santa Clara campus.

Our San Jose campus does not offer a regularly scheduled classroom tour. We invite you to schedule a personalized school tour and classroom observation instead. To schedule an appointment for an observation please contact our San Jose campus.

School Observation by Appointment

We welcome your visit to our classroom. The parent observation is an opportunity for you to get a glimpse of what life is like in a Montessori classroom. This may be your first exposure to the Montessori experience, your first time at our school, or you may be here to find out more about your child’s day. In order to give you as clear a picture as possible, we ask that you read and observe the following procedures for visiting the Infant Community, Primary, or Elementary classrooms. These guidelines offer hints for observing and interpreting what you see. Click the links below to read specific guidelines for each class.

To set up an appointment for an observation please contact one of our school campuses. Observations begin at 9:00 am.

Please note that these observations are for adults only.
