In October 2022, Castle Island earned the status of Accredited School, approved and recognized by the American Montessori Society (AMS).

Accreditation by the American Montessori Society is the gold standard of Montessori school excellence. It is the highest level of recognition a Montessori school can achieve, and is an important indicator of our school’s dedication to high quality education.

The multi-year process of the accreditation application, self-study, site visit and review with AMS has validated our commitment to delivering high-quality Montessori education and has provided Castle Island with a partnership with the world’s leading Montessori organization. AMS supports Castle Island by providing the resources, professional development, advocacy, and personal service needed to ensure that we continue to meet the school's strategic goals.

The school's leadership team is committed to carrying on the Pathway for Continuous School Improvement and Reaccreditation.
