Montessori Student Enrollment

  • We are excited that you are interested in enrolling your child in our DPSCD Montessori program.  We believe our Montessori program is second to none and offers the opportunity for all students to reach their fullest potential.  Prior to enrolling your child in a Montessori program it is important that you understand the Montessori Method.  To learn more about the Montessori Method visit the American Montessori Societies webpage: https://amshq.org/Families or visit the National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector: https://www.public-montessori.org/montessori/.

    Montessori Enrollment Mission Statement: 

    The DPSCD Montessori Leadership Team, in partnership with the District’s Office of Enrollment, fosters an enrollment process that is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion with the goal of welcoming students in grades Pre-K through 6th for a tuition free Montessori program 

     Montessori Enrollment Vision Statement: 

    The DPSCD Montessori Leadership Team, in partnership with the District’s Office of Enrollment, will work collaboratively to provide a family centered approach to the Montessori enrollment experience. Prior to the enrollment process, there will be opportunities to learn about the hallmarks of the Montessori method of teaching and learning though our annual Back-to-School Orientation and open house experiences at each District Montessori school. The enrollment process will support the District’s Blueprint 2021 to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion to cultivate a holistic enrollment experience that is committed to academic and social equality for students and families.
