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 firstname.lastname@example.org or you can mail a paper copy to the school (see address below).

"Our son's vocabulary, spelling, reading and social skills have grown by leaps and bounds under the Montessori method."
"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."
"Having entered our third full year at what is now The Portland Montessori School, we have been moved by not only Mr. Curt, whom Beck looks up to a great deal and thinks is the smartest person in the world, but also by the entire staff’s commitment to each child’s development."
"When our son started kindergarten at The Portland Montessori School, his behavior problems stopped almost immediately. That’s because he had interesting, engaging work to do. He’s so proud to show us the work he’s done when we pick him up after school."
"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."
