Our mission is to support every child in becoming a joyful and courageous agent of peace, builder of community, and creator of justice and beauty


Our Vision is to be...

  • An accessible and diverse public school embodying the Association Montessori Internationale  (AMI) standards for Montessori education.  

  • 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.

Diversity: children from all backgrounds benefit from learning together.

Community Partnerships: the child is best served through a collaboration of parents, children and the greater community.




Our commitment to neighborhood and community:

At Great Work Montessori, 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 fidelity Montessori learning environments for children of all backgrounds. Being a charter public school makes the elementary grades free to the public, however we believe it is important to offer the same opportunity to the younger learners in our community, regardless of their families' income level. Our preschool is pioneering a sliding scale tuition model for children one to five. 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 settings. At GWMS we know that diversity and the Montessori Method foster empathy, adaptability and intellectual agility in our students, ensuring a more capable, interdependent, and harmonious community for all.


“Education should no longer be mostly imparting of knowledge, but must take a new path, seeking the release of human potentialities."
