About Us

We are the first private Montessori elementary school in San Francisco and the first private school to offer an optional Spanish Immersion track. We currently have two lower elementary classrooms of K-3 students and every year we’re adding a grade to expand to K-8.

Mission Montessori provides an authentic elementary education that balances students’ interests with academic mastery. Read more on Why Montessori?

We are thrilled to have developed a supportive partnership with the Boys & Girls Club as we build the foundations of our school in San Francisco! Our school’s inaugural classrooms are located inside the Columbia Park Clubhouse of the Boys & Girls Club in the Mission District at 450 Guerrero Street. Our students have access to the Boys & Girls Club’s excellent facilities and afterschool programs, which include a gym, an art studio, a design studio and maker space, a full kitchen and more! In addition to a large on-site outdoor play area, the Club is close to the playgrounds at Dolores Park and Mission Pool. The Club is located just a few blocks from the 16th St. BART station and has a convenient passenger loading zone right in front for families to pick up and drop off their children.

We are excited to announce that we have found a permanent home at 1643 Valencia St. in the Mission District. This convenient location will house our elementary classrooms in addition to a large outdoor play area. We will move-in for the 2019-20 academic year and are excited to grow into our school’s new home in the Mission.

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!
