Over the last 45 years, The Amarillo Montessori Academy (AMA) has been working to educate children using the hands-on Montessori approach. We have successfully given back to our community by encouraging our students to “develop their potential as self-directed learners and as active, caring, contributing members of society”.

As a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, we depend on fundraising to help us expand our services and provide a high quality-learning environment for our children. AMA accepts children ages 6 weeks to 6 years old. Children are able to complete their kindergarten year at AMA as well.

The proceeds from Wing Wars will go towards building a gymnasium (shown on this page). This will provide the children a place to play when the weather is too hot or too cold.

We are looking forward to your support at this year’s Wing Wars!
