Montessori School of Leesburg and Purcellville

Montessori School of Leesburg is an independent private school for children between infant to 6 years of age. Founded in 1997, the MSL serves the growing needs. In 2014, Montessori School of Purcellville opened to continue enriching our children's minds.

The Montessori School of Leesburg provides a strong academic program which nurtures each child’s innate and unique personality in a safe and secure environment. We at the Montessori School of Leesburg are dedicated to helping children become confident, independent individuals with well developed powers of reasoning.


To mark 150 years since the birth of Maria Montessori, we have collaborated with BrightVibes who have made this wonderful film about Maria Montessori and her inspirational life.

We would like to thank Carolina Montessori for giving her time to talk about her great grandmother.


This week is Teachers Appreciation Week! Thank you to our MSL and MSP teachers for your continued dedication and commitment, to our students, during these uncertain times.

We appreciate you!
