About Us

Mission Montessori is a new school offering the first private Montessori elementary program in San Francisco. Our inaugural year, 2017-2018, began with one classroom of K-1 students. The school will expand to a full lower elementary (grades K-3 in a mixed age classroom), upper elementary (grades 4-6 in a mixed age classroom) and middle school (grades 7-8 in a mixed age classroom). We also offer an optional Spanish immersion program.  We are currently accepting students 5-9 years old for the 2018-2019 school year.

Our 2017-2018 school year starts on August 23rd, 2017 and ends on June 1st, 2018.

School Day: 8:30am – 3:30pm

We are excited to have found a great location for our school’s first year at the Columbia Park Clubhouse of the Boys & Girls Club in the Mission District. Mission Montessori will operate its founding lower elementary classroom here, at 450 Guerrero Street, while we search for a permanent home in the city.

Our students will have access to the Boys & Girls Club’s excellent facilities and afterschool programs, which include a gym, a dance studio, art classes, a pottery studio, a photography studio, a full kitchen and more! In addition to a large on-site outdoor play area, the Club is also close to the playgrounds at Dolores Park and Mission Pool. The Club is located just a few blocks from the BART station and has a convenient passenger loading zone right in front for families to pick up and drop off their children.

We are thrilled to have developed a supportive partnership with the Boys & Girls Club as we build the foundations of our new school in San Francisco!

We are excited to have a true Montessori Elementary for our child within the City. A real Montessori setting is unparalleled at creating motivated, intelligent, thoughtful individuals who love to learn. We are committed to providing a full K-8 Montessori education to our children, but were concerned that we would have to bus them over the bridge daily, while remaining in the City ourselves, to work. We don’t want to move out of town, and we want our children close by. I have been following the development of the program since its inception, and I see that this will not only allay our concerns, it will offer our children outstanding opportunities as well.
