Desert Sky Montessori is Central Oregon’s only tuition-free public Montessori Elementary School. As a public charter and nonprofit, we serve a diverse community and are committed to bringing the highest quality, Montessori-based education to our students.
Children at Desert Sky benefit from one-on-one learning, individualized and self-paced lesson plans, and a smaller student to teacher ratio.
Our teachers and staff are committed to the development of the whole child through a curriculum rooted in Montessori philosophy and principles that emphasize:
- Education and personal development
- Improving academic performance and attitudes
- Motivating students to become confident, competent, creative lifelong learners
- Encouraging students to be joyful contributors to society, compassionate global citizens, and committed caretakers of the earth
Our mission is to inspire the growth of the whole child by providing a safe, secure, and loving environment. Your contribution will help us extend our reach and empower more students to develop into productive, culturally diverse, successful people that will impact our community here in Central Oregon and beyond our borders.
Thank you for considering Desert Sky Montessori in this giving season!
“The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.” -Dr. Maria Montessori
