2019 Annual Conference

AMS 2019 Annual Conference
March 21 – 24, 2019
Washington Marriott Wardman Park
Washington, DC

Sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities will become available late summer, 2018.

About the Conference

With each passing year, new schools open in both the private and public sectors, more and more states recognize the efficacy of our pedagogy, and Montessori philosophy continues to proliferate in countries around the world. As our movement swells, so does our annual gathering. AMS is committed to bringing our unique tribe together each year for days filled with exploration, discovery, discussions, research, and enthusiasm. Come meet friends old and new to celebrate our successes, identify and confront our challenges, and plan for opportunities that lie ahead—in our schools, in our growing Montessori communities, and out in the larger world.
