Welcome from the Director


Welcome to Avant Garde Montessori!

We are excited to offer a State-of-the-art Campus and an authentic Montessori Program in the heart of Pomona community and its surrounding neighborhoods.

From our youngest infant students who are learning to explore the classroom and world around them, to our six-year-olds developing strategies to gain self, community, cultural, and environmental awareness; you’ll find confident and engaged learners at all levels. Avant Garde’s programs cultivate a student’s academic and social development and prepare them to advance successfully to leading next schools.

To our future families: We invite you to explore our website and familiarize with our Montessori Program offering and its objectives.  We can’t wait to open doors and welcome each one of you. I look forward to meeting your kids as you go through the admission process and introduce our vibrant school community and unique program.

Take care.
