Mrs. Noble


Mrs. Noble founded Capital Montessori School in 1988 and has been the school's only owner. Helping children achieve their maximum potential through the Montessori Method has become her lifelong passion.

Desiring the best for her daughter, she began researching her options when she ran across the Montessori Method.
