In 2011, Arlington Public Schools (APS) celebrates forty years of Montessori education. APS has seventeen primary classrooms in nine elementary schools. In addition, Drew Model has six lower elementary and three upper elementary classes. Gunston offers two Montessori classes for middle school students.

Montessori education, based on the work of Maria Montessori, is an interdisciplinary, multi-age approach to learning. Students work independently and cooperatively in a prepared environment which allows students to work at their own pace. Montessori teaching materials are designed to promote habits of concentration, initiative, persistence, and discovery, while the Montessori philosophy and community emphasizes respect for others, peace, and creativity.
