Montessori Student Enrollment

  • We are excited that you are interested in enrolling your child in our DPSCD Montessori program.  We offer two options for families interested in Montessori education.  Edison, Maybury and Palmer Park offer both traditional and Montessori learning environments.   Our newest school will offer a "wall to wall" Montessori experience.  We believe our Montessori program is second to none and offers the opportunity for all students to reach their fullest potential.  Prior to enrolling your child in a Montessori program it is important that you deeply understand the Montessori Method.  To learn more about the Montessori Method visit the American Montessori Societies webpage: https://amshq.org/Families or visit the National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector: https://www.public-montessori.org/montessori/.
