Elm City Montessori School

We are Elm City Montessori School, where we partner with families to build independent learners.
We are a local public charter school serving preschool to eighth grade students. Core to the Montessori approach is a focus on interactive, self-directed learning, and hands-on inquiry in multi-age classrooms that foster creativity, critical thinking, and leadership. Our school is rooted in Dr. Montessori’s vision of social justice. We are committed to building an Anti-Biased and Anti-Racist (ABAR) institution in partnership with staff, families, children, and community. Our developmental approach integrates core academic subjects with the arts and the outdoors in a nurturing and academically rigorous environment that builds towards a more just world. We prioritize the safety and health of our community and have expanded our outdoor programming.

How to know our school is right for your child:

  • You are excited about the Montessori approach and to be engaged in a family-founded school that is learning, growing, and engaging in meaningful Anti-Bias Anti-Racist work.
  • You value individualized, child-centered, and hands-on learning in a diverse community.
  • Your child will thrive in multi-age classrooms (ages 3-6, 6-9, 9-12, 13-14).
