At The Portland Montessori School, we offer children an exceptional education in a well-established school environment that emphasizes peace and respect. Key to our ability to offer this is our professional team of guides (teachers), classroom assistants, program assistants and administrative leadership. All of our guides and most staff members are Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) certified, and most have been with our school for over 10 years. Learn more about our guides and staff here so that you can understand why so many parents entrust our school with their children’s education and well being.

"The Portland Montessori School is a school with a heart. Each year, parents raise money to sustain scholarships that make the dream of a Montessori education a reality for families who could not otherwise afford it. That shows the true spirit of community at our school."
"Our son sincerely loves his guide, who shows him authentic kindness, warmth, and non-judgmental acceptance. Under her guidance, he has become a self-directed, competent, and curious learner who cares about the world and others around him."
"My wife and I can’t thank the school enough for helping not only our son, but also us as we try to provide a consistent learning environment in our home."
"The school community at The Portland Montessori School creates a truly inspiring environment that is nurturing and encourages independence and a desire to learn. We see the results of this in our daughter every day."
"As parents, our ultimate goal is for our child to make independent, healthy and confident choices so he can be a happy and productive person wherever he is in life. We are thankful he is with Miss Jennifer's elementary class and The Portland Montessori School community, where he is developing those traits."
