“Preparing Today’s Children to LEAP into Tomorrow’s Future”


LEAP International Montessori School is an educational organization that emphasizes independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical, spiritual, and social development. This educational approach provides a supportive learning environment that is designed to help develop creativity, social skills, problem-solving, and time management tools. Our dedicated teachers are here to inspire your children to LEAP into tomorrow’s future with confidence and goodwill.

LEAP International Montessori School is an authentic Montessori school. This means our teachers are trained Montessori teachers and we provide an authentic Montessori curriculum.  There is also exposure to foreign languages and we also, specifically study the 19 pueblos of the New Mexico. Enrollment is available for children ages 18 months through 6 years old.  Ask us about our evolving Elementary expansion program for students ages 6-12 years old!

Absolutely LOVE this school!
My daughter has been going here for many years since she was 18mo and is now starting into the elementary program. This school is an authentic Montessori and the owner/primary teacher has been all over the world studying, teaching and learning. My daughter has learned so much since she has been here and is already reading at 4. Not only is the education here top notch but the care is as well. Mrs. Griffin and Mrs. Oh plus all the assistants are wonderful. They treat my children as they would their own and am always contacted whenever an accident occurs even as small as a scraped knee. They are so kind not only to my children, but to me as well. I have also spent many hours inside the classroom as a volunteer and have seen how awesome this program is. I plan on my children continuing here for many years.

I cannot say enough good things about LEAP Montessori. I purposefully waited several months to do a review to make sure I could confidently stand by what I have to say. When we moved my four year old to LEAP 8 months ago he was having severe behavioral problems and was on the verge of expulsion at his old preschool. I couldn't have asked for a more kind and patient teacher for my child. Ms. Griffin has worked miracles! The change I've seen in him has been remarkable. Almost instantly they were able to refer me to other people and resources to help us with him at home too. He's now a thriving "normal" four year old, and he loves going to school. I have spent time in the classroom and Ms Griffin has created a wonderfully calm learning environment. The kids are active and engaged in their lessons and work. She clearly adores the children and loves what she gets to do every day. She also has great classroom management skills. As a former teacher myself, I've seen nothing about her behavior towards the children that is concerning. She does a great job at redirecting the kids while also reinforcing and reminding them the rules in a loving way. This school and Ms Griffin have been a tremendous blessing for our family. Any child would be a lucky to attend!
