Salem Montessori – Admissions

As a private non-profit corporation, the Salem Montessori School, Inc. is an affiliate member of the American Montessori Society. Our school is supported by tuition and donations and governed by a board of directors.

Salem Montessori School, Inc. admits students of any race, color, national, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its education and admissions policies.

To learn more about our school, you can schedule a private tour, or attend of our “Getting To Know Salem Montessori School” meetings. Join us for coffee as we give you a brief overview of Montessori philosophy and curriculum. You will have the opportunity to observe the students in the classrooms, followed by a time for conversation about what you have seen.

The meetings will be held at 9:30 am on the following Wednesdays:

The meetings will be over by 11 a.m. Although this meeting is designed just for adults, there may be another time when you can bring your child for a visit.

We believe that seeing the children in action in the classroom is the most important step in understanding Montessori education and deciding if our school is a good match for your child.
