Thank you for your interest in Mission Montessori, San Francisco’s first private Montessori elementary school. Our school 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 me with any questions about our school, the Montessori method, our Spanish language options, or the admissions process. I'm here to help you, and I look forward to welcoming your family to Mission Montessori!

Mission Montessori offers everything you could wish for your child - a rich curricula both inside and outside of the classroom, Spanish language, practical life skills, and hands-on lessons that make learning engaging and memorable. Their child-centered approach means my daughters are engaged, curious and continually learning not just academics but the soft skills required to be successful in the world. In addition, the administration is exceptionally organized and dedicated to creating a nurturing and supportive community for all of us. We could not think of a better place for our children.
