Welcome to Downtown Montessori Academy

Downtown Montessori Academy is a small, diverse, community-focused Montessori school serving families since 1976. Our mission is and has always been to provide a Montessori education for children within a small community of learners. We educate children age 3 to grade 8, and give parents an alternative to larger middle school programs.

We strive to provide an environment that supports meaningful work in a community of learners that allows children to create a vision for their future. The key is to see the hidden nature of the child at given stages of development and design an environment that fulfills the child’s innate potential.

Our educational approach is for children to trust in their own ability, to think and solve problems independently. The students learn not to be afraid of making mistakes. They learn to try and try again without fear of embarrassment. Our Montessori students are taught pride in their work.

I invite you to take the time to get to know Downtown Montessori and understand the remarkable educational journey we offer to children.

 

Sincerely,

Virginia Flynn, Head of School

Founded in 1976, the Downtown Montessori Academy currently enrolls more than 300 students age 3 to grade 8. Downtown Montessori Academy is one of Milwaukee’s oldest and most diverse charter schools.
