"I have taught in public schools for the past ten years, including six years in kindergarten, and I can attest that Montessori is different, special, and provides an optimum setting for children's growth and development."

A Strong, Vibrant School Community

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 (Montessori Matters) delivered by your guide, PAC socials or our always fun and entertaining school annual auction.
