Mission and philosophy

Our mission

Montessori Albania encourages independent, self-directed learning for life in a child-centered international community valuing peace, respect for others and pride in individual differences.


Our philosophy

International Montessori school of Albania (IMSA) was founded in 2008 to foster a love of learning and to educate children to be caring, socially responsible citizens in their community and world. Montessori Albania seeks to educate the whole child, applying the Montessori philosophy, in an internationally-oriented environment.

The philosophy is based on the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952) whose holistic vision of education focuses on the cognitive, social, emotional and physical needs of the child. For Dr. Montessori, and for IMSA, education at an early age is preparation for life.
