Nurturing Curiosity, Guiding Discovery

The Portland Montessori School has a long-standing tradition of educating children for life. Founded in 1962 as Providence Montessori School, we were the first Montessori school in the Pacific Northwest. We offer primary and elementary programs at our Northeast Portland campus that build on a rich history of learning, friendship and community. Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) recognized, and guided by a gifted team of certified professionals, we are committed to helping children develop a lifelong love of learning and cultivating the skills essential to authentic living.

Now Enrolling for January 2015

The Portland Montessori School is currently accepting mid year applications for children ages 2 1/2 to 12 years to start in January 2015. Partial tuition assistance is also available to families who qualify for full day programs in both Primary and Elementary. For more information and to schedule a tour, contact us at
