About Montessori Magnet School

One 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.

 

For more information about the magnet program and application process, please contact the district's Magnet Office at (518) 475-6551.
