  • A student body who respect themselves, others, and their environment.

  • A community of young people who see themselves as citizens of the world and enter into society eager and prepared to contribute to a peaceful and harmonious future.

  • A partnership between parents, educators, and community members working together to support children in recognizing their “Great Work.”  

Our Values are...

AMI Standards: dedication to the complete expression of the Montessori Method allows for development of the whole child.

Our commitment to neighborhood and community:

At Great Work, we believe that social justice must be the heart of the school curriculum, as well as a guiding value of our work. We are building a new kind of school from the ground up. This learning community aspires to be the first of its kind, offering high quality Montessori learning environments for children of all backgrounds. While the elementary school is a Jeffco charter and is free to the public, we believe it is importat to offer preschool to families regardless of their income level. Our preschool is pioneering a tuition model calculated on the basis of each family’s ability to pay. Any family, regardless of their ability to pay is welcome in our community.

Current research points to improved academic and social outcomes in socioeconomically diverse learning communities. The Great Work Montessori Preschool enrollment will be maintained in a balance reflecting our conviction that diversity fosters empathy, adaptability and intellectual agility in our students, ensuring a more capable, interdependent, and harmonious community for all.
