About Us

Our Philosophy

We believe and feel that home and school should work closely together to help educate our citizens of tomorrow, so that their world may be a more peaceful and happier place.

Our aim is to provide a loving and healthy atmosphere where children may learn cooperation and understanding, develop good habits and progress mentally, physically, and socially.

Our History

American Montessori Preschool and Elementary, Inc. was founded by a family of experienced administrators and educators:  Mr. N.M. Rajah ("Roger") and Mrs. Noeline Rajah.  

The first school, Location #1 at 4817 Eagle Rock Blvd., Los Angeles, CA, 90041, was established in 1990.  This school was started from an empty school building, which had no existing business at the time.  The founders of American Montessori Preschool and Elementary, Inc. had to start from the very beginning to create a safe and nurturing school environment.  In 1995, Location #2 at 4475 Eagle Rock Blvd., Los Angeles, CA, 90041, was established as an expansion to the Location #1 school.  As with Location #1, the founders had to start from the very beginning again to create the school as it is today.  Location #2 offers an Elementary School program, in addition to our Preschool and Kindergarten program.  In 2014, Location #1 was established as an Infant and Toddler Center to help meet the growing needs for child care at an earlier age.

Our Teachers

An essential quality of a great school is the management's ability to select professional teachers and to retain them permanently.  Most of our current staff have been with us for well over 15 years.  All of our teachers have their own unique blend of qualities which help to create a unique, diverse, and stimulating environment at our schools.  When selecting teachers and staff for our schools, these are the many qualities that management looks for in potential candidates:

  • accountable
  • adaptable
  • caring
  • compassionate
  • creative
  • dedicated
  • determined
  • empathetic
  • engaging
  • evolving
  • forgiving
  • generous
  • inspirational
  • joyful
  • kind
  • organized
  • passionate
  • patient
  • resilient
  • resourceful
  • trustworthy
  • vulnerable

The importance of teachers in a school is self-evident.  They are one of the main pillars of a sound and progressive community.  And, they bear the weight and responsibility of shaping and directing the minds of the next generation.

The most important factor in determining the quality of education a child receives is the quality of the school management and teachers.  

Our school is recognized by The Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth and the City of Los Angeles.
