Thank you for your interest in Mission Montessori! Our elementary program was started to meet a need in San Francisco, a need for an alternative educational approach that has high expectations for students academically while also taking their interests, independence, and motivations seriously.

At Mission Montessori, we’re dedicated to providing this high quality educational experience for our students and families in an intimate environment that meets the developmental, social, and academic needs of our students. Our goal each day is for our students to walk away feeling satisfied from hard work, enthralled with new discoveries, and inspired to continue on their journey as lifelong learners.  

We are a small, dedicated, and passionate community of educators and families. If this sounds like it could be a fit for your family, we encourage you to schedule a tour to learn more about our school!

Please contact us with any questions about our school, the Montessori method, or the admissions process. We are here to help you, and we look forward to welcoming your family to Mission Montessori!
