Welcome to the Montessori School of Greater Lafayette

     MSGL is a not-for-profit, parent-owned Montessori school serving Tippecanoe County, Indiana since 1972. We offer programs for more than 150 children between the ages of 1 and 9 years on our beautiful campus overlooking the Wabash River Valley in West Lafayette. We are accredited by the American Montessori Society.

     We provide a child-centered environment facilitating independence and learning for the joy of learning, guided by the educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. With a foundation of respect for self and others and a strong emphasis on cultural appreciation, our staff and parents create a supportive network for families to help children become well-rounded individuals.
