John William Montessori School was founded by two strong couples in their home town at Tanoso, Kumasi with help of their their children William and Kachina Randall.
They got inspired by her late American adopted mother, Muriel KingTaylor, who shared her desire to do something for the children of Ghana, offered them the chance of a good education.
The school's mission is to provide a place where children can struggle gracefully without physical or emotional harm. It is also a place where children can rejoice and have fun together. The aim is to provide excellence in education and support to all children at the school so that they can learn, develop a strong pride, work hard, and lead good lives through academic achievement and responsible citizenship. This was their goal for the children and their country Ghana.
