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."
"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!"
"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."
"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."
"The Portland Montessori School has given my children such an appreciation for learning and an extensive fund of knowledge. It has been a nurturing, appropriately challenging environment for them to reach their potential."
