International Montessori-Schule Prein an der Rax is located in the wonderful natural and cultural landscape of the easternmost foothills of the Alps, just an hour’s drive south of Vienna.

Our big front yard are the foothills of the Alps. Nice thing about a boarding school is that after all the day’s work is done, there is still lot of time for an afternoon hike.

“During the difficult period of adolescence it is desirable to have the child live outside his habitual surroundings, outside the family, in the country, in a peaceful place, in the bosom of nature. There, an existence in the open air, individual treatment, a sound diet ought to be the first conditions for the of a center of studies and of work.” ~~~ Maria Montessori
