Fall 2020 space is filling up fast. Our middle school and 1st through 3rd grade is full and wait listed. We still have a few openings for the 4th and 5th grades. Please submit an application if you would like to enroll, don’t wait!

    We are thrilled that you have chosen to glimpse a view of life at Summit-Questa. We are a unique community of Montessori educators, parents, children, and friends dedicated to the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. This school originated in 1981 as Summit Private School of Ft. Lauderdale, primarily a Montessori preschool. In 1991 I bought the school and focused on building our Montessori elementary and middle school levels. Read more

    My son just graduated 8th grade from Summit-Questa Montessori School and I couldn’t be more proud, thankful & prepared for high school! My son got an exceptional education, his growth was amazing to watch unfold in this kind, loving & supportive community! I never had the privilige to attend a private or a Montessori school, but I see the difference and I am so thankful my son did! Thank you Ms. Judy & all your amazing teachers & staff! We will miss you all very much! xoxox
