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.

"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."
"As the mom of identical (yet nothing alike) twins, we wanted a school community that would nurture their individual curiosities and interests and provide them the same lifelong love of learning that I have experienced as a Montessori student many years ago. We found that in The Portland Montessori School."
"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."
"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."
