NAMTA's Role in Montessori Adolescent Programming


Since 1976, NAMTA has provided documentation, leadership, and guidance in consolidating Montessori adolescent education and programs.  NAMTA’s seminars, conferences, and summer intensives have established a strong heritage of best practices through evolving school programs.  The work has included baseline research, school consultation, publications, and six colloquia that were attended by AMI trainers and practitioners, including Renilde Montessori and Camillo Grazzini.
