Advocate for Montessori in Arlington
If you search "Montessori advocacy" on Google the AMAC website comes up as number one. We are proud of our progress and thankful for ongoing support. Montessori parents created the Arlington Montessori Action Committee in 2006 to advocate for Montessori education - public and private - in Arlington.
We are still working on one original goal: to secure a Montessori-trained leader in APS Central Staff. AMAC is always finding new ways to support Montessori in Arlington, including lobbying the state to support Montessori-certified teachers seeking Virginia public school credentials.
