Since its founding in 1978, the Marlboro Montessori Academy in Morganville, NJ with easy access to and from Matawan, Manalapan, Old Bridge and Freehold has remained centered and steadfast in its mission as a Montessori School.
The Marlboro Montessori Academy is one of the country's most famous Elementary Schools. Offering after school programs, half day school, toddler day care and summer camp activities, we have students from various towns including Matawan , Freehold , Old Bridge, Manalapan, Aberdeen, Hazlet, South Amboy, Millstone, Englishtown, Holmdel, Colts Neck, Howell, Wickatunk, Middletown, Spotswood and others in Monmouth County, NJ.
Our philosophy and Montessori learning materials continue to support the founding principles set forth over 100 years ago by MARIA MONTESSORI.
While keeping grounded in the basic traditions and teachings of Montessori, our Academy has created many new contributions and enhancements to further connect with the children’s desire to discover and learn. This has been our great formula for success!
On the Barbara Walters ABC-TV Special "The 10 Most Fascinating People Of 2004" Larry Page and Sergey Brin, founders of the popular Internet search engine Google.com, credited their years as Montessori students as a major factor behind their success. When Barbara Walters asked if the fact that their parents were college professors was a factor behind their success, they said no, that it was their going to a Montessori school where they learned to be self-directed and self-starters. They said that Montessori education allowed them to learn to think for themselves and gave them freedom to pursue their own interests. It is quite an interesting collection of people throughout history who have gone to Montessori schools, sent their children to Montessori schools, or supported this method of education in one way or another. The short list includes: Alice Waters, Friedrich Hundertwasser, Julia Child, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Helen Keller, Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Mahatma Gandhi, Sigmund Freud, Buckminster Fuller, Leo Tolstoy, Bertrand Russell, Jean Piaget, Erik Erikson, John Holt, Ann Frank, the Dalai Lama, Jacqueline Kennedy, Prince William and Prince Harry of the English royal family, Cher Bono, Yul Brynner, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Yo Yo Ma.
