Introduction Almost 200 AMI Recognized, Affiliated and Associated schools were invited to participate in the 2015 Salary Survey. The survey was conducted online and featured 49 questions. Ninety-two schools responded. This report provides the most salient statistics from the 2015 Salary Survey. The report follows this format: • Large scale demographics for each school • The relationship between school demographics and salaries • A summary of teacher and administrator qualifications • The relationship between qualifications and salaries • Benefits provided and tuition reduction programs • Self reported factors that affect salaries • Comparison to data collected in 2002, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011 & 2013 • Information on assistants’ wages The survey was voluntary, therefore the data is not scientific and there is no basis for making inferences to all AMI schools. The results are intended to be useful for demonstrating the range of salaries offered at AMI schools. In some cases, the number of respondents for a certain category is especially small, resulting in unrepresentative numbers. These cases will be indicated. Thank you for participating in the 2015 Salary Survey. We hope you find this report useful as you administer the work of Dr. Montessori in your community.

Conclusion                              

Overall average salaries for all populations are comparable to the 2013 salary survey data with the exception of the Administrators’ salary. The Administrators’ average salary is $5,000 less than what was reported in 2013, but comparable to years prior to that. Data can be found at the Bureau of Labor Statistics (http://www.bls.gov) for comparing to traditional public and other private school teachers, as well as salaries by region. The final graph below represents the comparison of AMI teacher and administrator salaries (blue columns) to national average salaries (red columns) using the most recent data available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (May 2014). AMI teachers at A to I and primary levels make more than their national counterparts, elementary level teachers make less. AMI administrators, as reported via this survey, make quite a bit less than most education administrators.
