of three magnet schools in the City School District of
Albany, the mission of Montessori Magnet School is to
create and support the development of a responsible,
culturally diverse community of individual learners
through diligent work in and adherence to the Montessori
philosophy and method. The school began in 1993 and for
12 years was located in the former Cathedral Academy
near Lincoln Park. In 2005, the school moved to its
current home -- a new building in Westland Hills
equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and technology.
