"The New AMS Pathway of Continuous School Improvement"
The AMS Pathway of Continuous School Improvement is a school-quality initiative available to every AMS member school at no additional cost. It consists of a manageable series of 10 steps that helps schools demonstrate and articulate their commitment to quality Montessori education. It is a framework based on the Montessori Essentials work, a partnership between AMS and AMI-USA, beginning with 5 Core Components of Montessori Education with further steps along the Pathway based on incremental movement through AMS accreditation standards.
PETER PICHÉ serves as a consultant to schools participating in the AMS Pathway of Continuous School Improvement and is a professional leadership coach to school leaders. He is Montessori-credentialed in Primary and Elementary I–II and has experience teaching in Middle School. Peter founded the Adolescent Community at Montessori Community School in Durham, NC.
