Amherst Montessori School's mission is to build a peaceful world, one child at a time.

Amherst Montessori School has set an ambitious goal for Valley Gives Day: $15,000 in ONE DAY! Join us in making a difference in the life of our school by making a gift to the Annual Fund on Valley Gives Day!

Each year, AMS appeals to the members of our community for a gift to support the school's Annual Fund. The Annual Fund supports many of the "extras" that enhance and distinguish the education at Amherst Montessori School. The Annual Fund adds approximately eight percent to the School’s operating budget and enables us to attract and retain talented Montessori faculty and specialists who round out our offerings with music, Spanish, PE, yoga, and art, and to offer unique trips off-campus that expand the boundaries of our students' learning. The Annual Fund helps Amherst Montessori School offer each child a truly exceptional educational experience.

The 2014-15 Annual Fund campaign runs through June 30, 2015 but we hope you will consider making your gift or pledge today on VALLEY GIVES DAY! Reaching our goal early will help us to provide even more enhancements to everything that makes AMS so special. Thank you for your support on Valley Gives Day!
