The Ivy School - Portland's first tuition-free/public/charter Montessori school - will open this September with 60 students in two mixed-age classrooms serving grades one through three. Any child eligible for enrollment in Portland Public Schools may apply for admission to the Ivy School via an upcoming lottery.
The Ivy School's goal is to enable children of diverse backgrounds to learn at their own pace by offering a developmentally appropriate and challenging academic environment that models grace and courtesy and fosters a peaceful community of lifelong learners. The curriculum is bi-lingual English/Spanish.
The Ivy School will be holding an informational event in the auditorium of the Matt Dishman Community Center on Sunday, May 3rd at 6:30 p.m. All are welcome to attend and learn more about the school. Staff will be available after the presentation to discuss both Montessori methods and the Ivy School itself.
A second public meeting is scheduled for Sunday, May 17 at 6:30 at the Peninsula Park Community Center. Please RSVP for either event to [email protected].
