As a charter school, we are given the flexibility to create our own educational model while also being held to a high level of accountability from the State of Delaware Department of Education. We work closely with other charter and Montessori schools and are committed to being a member of the larger education community. We are also committed to building a community within our classrooms, within our school, and with our families.

FSMA strives to create joyful classrooms that are filled with learning. We respond to individual needs, set individual goals, and give each child an individualized education. We are committed to making this a place where your child loves school, embraces learning, develops strong friendships and learns new ways to think about the world around them.

Mission Statement: The mission of the First State Montessori Academy is to create successful, contributing, life-long learners in a Montessori public educational program for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade.

First State Montessori Academy provides parents and students with an authentic, time-tested, Montessori education in a public school.  We believe that the creation of a Montessori public school in New Castle County, DE will improve student learning, allow for greater choice for parents, and serve as a model for alternative approaches to education by providing a proven and innovative teaching and learning environment.
