Applications for tuition assistance are due by April 30th, 2017 for the 2017-2018 school year.
Our annual school auction raises money for our tuition assistance fund which allows us to offer tuition assistance to full day students in both our Primary and Elementary programs. The tuition assistance committee reviews each request on a need-based, case-by-case basis. Currently 15-20% of our students receive tuition assistance.
The application can be found to the left or you can pick up a copy at the front desk. The application can either be emailed to Deidre DeMerritt at email@example.com or you can mail a paper copy to the school (see address below).

"If it's true what Maria Montessori said, that the test of the correctness of an educational approach is the happiness of the child, then this school is succeeding beyond our wildest dreams. Both our boys are so happy to go to school and so proud of their work."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"The outdoor play area offered at The Portland Montessori School is by far the best we saw in the city, and is a daily source of inspiration for imaginative play for our son. It is a beautiful, secluded-feeling wonderland and the children use it daily, rain or shine!"
