At Maria Montessori School, our location is much more than just a downtown Memphis address.

Situated in the heart of the Harbor Town community, the school is an integral part of a unique urban neighborhood, often hailed as one of the best examples of planned community in the United States.


  • Our proximity to the Mississippi and Wolf rivers offers opportunities for learning through outdoor education that simply can’t be found elsewhere.
  • Our outdoor River Garden and Amphitheater overlooking the Harbor Town Marina is an ideal spot for school gatherings and performances.
  • Built in stages beginning in 1992, our campus buildings were designed by Architecture, Inc.
