To provide convenient access to extracurricular activities, we regularly coordinate after school programs with well-respected third party organizations. These organizations hold their extracurricular classes or programs on our campus. When children are in after school enrichment and are signed up for these classes, the leader of the program escorts them to the class and returns them to the after school enrichment when the class ends. Parents must register and pay for these classes directly with the organization offering them. See a list of class offerings below.

Summer Camp of Coding for Elementary Students
Portland Kids Coding (PKC) is holding a "Summer Camp of Coding" for students 2nd through 8th grade here at TPMS on the weeks of July 17--21, July 24--28, and July 31--August 4, from 9 am - 12 pm. Cost is $160 a week.
PKC will be teaching kids the fundamentals of programming through guided game-making for the first few days of camp. After beginners complete a frogger-type game as a group, they will design and develop their own games. At that point, concepts and skills will be taught based on what they need to bring their own ideas to life.

"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."
"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."
"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."
"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!"
