Dynamite Montessori Academy School Cave Creek Scottsdale Phoenix Arizona

Our History

We are more than a school

Dynamite Montessori Academy is a family-owned business in Cave Creek, Arizona, that opened its doors in 1998 with 16 children. Five years later, Dynamite moved to its current location situated on five acres surrounded by horse properties. Since then, Dynamite has become a staple of education in the Cave Creek area for the past 24 years.

We offer a bilingual (Spanish/English), AMI Montessori program for all children in our Toddler House, Children’s House and Elementary Sports Academy. Dynamite is more than a school—it is a community where generations return to experience the best Montessori education has to offer. Dynamite encourages the self-development of each child’s individual natural potential by encouraging creativity, proactive thinking skills, diversity and respect for all.

We have miniature donkeys, goats, chickens and bunnies. The children actively participate in animal care of both big and small animals and care of the overall outdoor environment. Being a student at Dynamite Montessori Academy is a truly unique experience that gives our children the keys to lifelong learning and success.
