About Us

Mission Montessori began in 2017 as San Francisco’s first private Montessori elementary school. In 2019, Mission Montessori acquired the beautiful LePort Montessori campus at 50 Fell Street in the bustling Mid-Market neighborhood. Mission Montessori now includes programs for infants (12 weeks-18 months), toddlers (18 months-3 yrs old), and primary/preschool (3-6 yrs old), in addition to our elementary which will go all the way to 8th grade.

We are thrilled to now be a Montessori program from infancy to elementary and to offer an optional Spanish Immersion track starting at 18 months and through the elementary years.

We are thrilled to have a true Montessori Elementary for our child within the City, especially one with excellent art and science enrichment beyond the classroom. As our son’s first year in the school has demonstrated, a real Montessori setting is unparalleled at creating motivated, intelligent, thoughtful individuals who love to learn. His progress, projects and initiatives this year have been inspiring to watch. His delight in attending school, including every after-school program, is palpable. He hates to miss even an hour of school, or after-school programs, for any reason. The teachers are wonderful, and all the children endlessly impress us with their ideas, capabilities, and kindness. The community has also been a wonderful addition to our lives. We can’t wait till next year when our daughter can join as well.

We are committed to providing a full K-8 Montessori education to our children, and could not be more happy with our decision to enroll them at Mission Montessori!
