We are currently accepting applicants for Fall 2016-2017

"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."

During the enrollment process, one of our main goals is to help you discover if our school, its culture and way of educating your child are a good fit for your child and family. We also want to make sure your child will thrive personally and educationally at our school. To do that, we spend a little time getting to know you and your child, and give you the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about our school.

Although we wish we could provide every applicant admission to our school, we give precedence to families with children who are currently enrolled in our school. We also strive to maintain a balance of age ranges and gender in our mixed-age classrooms to create a healthy, thriving community.

Visit our How It Works page to learn more about our admissions and enrollment process. We also recommend that you attend one of our open houses for our primary or elementary programs. Dates are listed on our Open House page or you may contact Jessica, our Director of Admissions at 503-688-2993 for more information.

“I have especially enjoyed helping create and nurture community-building programs like Community Connections and our Games at Recess Program. Through such programs, The Portland Montessori School encourages children to think holistically about the world around them and to begin considering the profound impact they can make on helping others—at any age.”
