The Evergreen Montessori School began in 2003. It was originally located in a wonderful old home at 1642 Poplar Avenue in Midtown. Cendrillon Montessori School was originally at this location and had been there since 1985. In 2003 after the retirement of Vincent Lapkine, Angela and Aaron Feathers started Evergreen. They continued on with the same staff and teachers.
Determined to get AMI certified, Angela began the AMI Primary Training in St. Louis with fellow teacher Melissa Bell in 2004. As a result of the hard work and stout devotion of faculty and staff, Evergreen outgrew its facilities in just four short years. The foundation provided by Maria Montessori’s teachings has proven to be a solid one, and Evergreen continues to flourish.
In the summer of 2007, Evergreen made the move to 751 N. Trezevant. Gaining additional indoor and green space, we were able to add an Assistants to Infancy (A to I) classroom and a second Primary classroom to our existing Primary and Elementary communities. The dedication of faculty, staff, administrators, parents and friends resulted in an excellent beginning for Evergreen and that same dedication continues today.
