What to expect
Thank you for your interest in Desert Montessori School, a warm and stimulating modified Montessori environment for children ages 2 – 12 years old. One of life’s most satisfying and long-lasting lessons is for a young child to experience his or her capabilities in a respectful and attentive environment.
We are dedicated to introducing meaningful creative opportunities where children explore, develop, integrate and expand to their fullest potential. Our curriculum is sequentially designed, enhancing a child’s current abilities and expanding them to wider interests and perspectives.
We are lucky to be able to offer rolling admission to many of our programs. Please note that students must be two years old at the time of enrollment to attend DMS. We invite all of our applicants to visit the classrooms into which they would be enrolling. Applicant visits vary in length, depending on the age of the child and the grade for which they are applying. Applications are accepted at any time. However, we encourage families to enroll by the enrollment deadlines as many of our classrooms fill quickly.
