A Strong, Vibrant School Community

"In her four years with the elementary program our daughter has blossomed into a bright, independent, self-assured child who LOVES to come to school every day. We are thankful for this strong, close-knit community, and can’t imagine her attending any other school for her elementary education."

At The Portland Montessori School, we have a connected, vibrant and active school community that includes students, their families and the teachers and staff of our school. Part of what makes that community so strong is the many opportunities the school provides for families to meet each other, and also for our school staff to interact with each other and school families—for example, our lively Coffee Fridays, Parent Education Evenings delivered by your guide, PAC socials or our always fun and entertaining school annual auction.

"At The Portland Montessori School, our kids learn to use buttons, tie their shoes, juice an orange, crack nuts and cut bananas, clean up after themselves, identify odd and even numbers, sew, set their place at the table, pour their own milk, understand the value of numbers into the thousands, and identify continents and countries on a map—and have fun doing it all!"
