Welcome to our website! We are a group of parents, educators and community members from Montezuma County who are coming together to form a Montessori Charter Elementary School!
Our founding committee has applied for charter authorization from the Montezuma-Cortez Re-1 School District in August of 2013. We hope to open our doors as a publicly funded Kindergarten through 8th grade program starting in the fall of 2014.
Our Mission: To provide a vibrant and engaging learning environment based on the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori, that supports students’ academic excellence and their ability to become empowered, creative, lifelong learners responsible for themselves, their community, and their environment.
