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 delivered by your guide, PAC socials or our always fun and entertaining school annual auction.
"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."
"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."
"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."
"Yesterday my second grader added 61 plus 61 in her head and she's zipping through the Harry Potter series. So while the school doesn’t measure her progress with test scores, I can see how much she has learned, but more importantly, I can see and feel her excitement about learning."
