Who We Are
Every great school has two main goals: preparing students for the world they will inherit and strengthening families. At Milwaukee Montessori School, we build extraordinary academic foundations based on our students’ intrinsic motivations and natural interests while maintaining a delicate balance between tradition and innovation. School is never boring for our students, and it’s never boring for us! While we offer many of the same benefits you might find at other schools, we provide so much more for your personal and professional development: a purposeful, positive, and stimulating work environment, and well-trained, experienced, and supportive faculty and administrators working together toward one goal: educating students for knowledge, courage, integrity, and compassion. If we do not have an opening right now, we will keep your information on file for 90 days and we will contact you as openings develop.
