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.
"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!"
"I am so happy that my son is spending his kindergarten year in a Montessori environment where his knowledge, self-control, kindness, sense of purpose, and confidence have all grown by leaps and bounds."
"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!"
"Our son's vocabulary, spelling, reading and social skills have grown by leaps and bounds under the Montessori method."
"We've been a part of this amazing community for seven years. Not only are our children getting a fabulous education, but they receive personal care and attention every single day."
