Founded in 2008, Baltimore Montessori Public Charter School is a mission-driven school in the historic community of Greenmount West.
Today, our school features beautiful spaces for learning and play, an extensive Seed to Table program, visionary leadership, talented and dedicated staff, and a dynamic and engaged parent community.
In our joyful and diverse learning community, children learn with the support of highly trained teacher-guides in carefully prepared classroom environments. In mixed age groupings, students explore a rigorous curriculum and engage in relevant projects that promote independence, critical thinking, and self-regulation.
Our whole child, hands-on approach supports students to develop the habits and mindsets necessary for success in school and in life. Key partners help us to meet the needs of our growing community and ensure our students have meaningful opportunities to explore the arts, develop their capacity for peace, and prepare for global citizenship.
