OUR SCHOOL

Baltimore Montessori Public Charter School (BMPCS) is Baltimore’s first public Montessori school. We now serve 450 students in Pre-K3 through 8th grade, with families traveling from 26 different Baltimore City zip codes to attend our joyful and diverse learning community. Our children learn with the support of highly trained teacher-guides in carefully prepared classroom environments that promote independence, self-discipline, and lifelong learning. In mixed age classroom groupings, our children explore a rigorous and engaging curriculum while developing the habits and mindsets necessary for academic and social success.
