Why choose Mount Anville Montessori Junior School?

Our school was founded by the society of the Sacred Heart and its origin dates from 1865. Mount Anville Montessori Junior School is a vibrant school with over 450 students attending, from the age of 2 ½  to 12 years of age. The Sacred Heart goals of faith, social awareness, community, intellect and character permeate every aspect of the child's journey of life.

At Mount Anville, our students will experience a loving, thriving, welcoming community where they will be cherished and nurtured, supporting each child's individuality every day.

Our aim is to develop our students' academically, spiritually, morally, physically and socially. As they progress through our school, we will deliver a stimulating, exciting curriculum, inspired by the Maria Montessori philosophy up to 2nd class whilst, the milestones of the National Curriculum as laid down by the Department of Education and Skills, are achieved, consolidated, and extended.
