What makes Julia Street Montessori School Special?

Your Child’s Development

We partner with each family to assist the child’s whole development into the person they are destined to become.

We compliment the Montessori philosophy by incorporating thematic units of study each month which include cultural, science and geography lessons, delving into subjects from Fall seasonal trees and apples to Artist studies like Henri Matisse.

Beautiful & Safe Setting

Our serene neighborhood location makes it a joy to drop your child off at each day.

Our school is housed in a renovated home with a welcoming, comfortable home away from home feel.

We also feel very safe having Claxton elementary across the way. We have locking doors that only teachers and parents have the code for.

Spacious Classroom

Separate areas of study, lots of natural light, playground & community garden.

Service Learning

We are dedicated to service-learning. In the picture above, our students decorated and packed snack bags for people in need that were delivered to a local charity organization.

We partner with local organizations like Manna, Babies Need Bottoms, ABCCM, Sleep Tight Kids. 


We have a beautiful, natural playground.

There are many ways to have fun on our playground, the children enjoy our play structure, playing tag and digging in the dirt. We have lots of shade and space to run. We also have a sandbox, riding toys, rock area, and garden.

Volunteers and Ambassadors 

We encourage parent volunteers if your family situation allows.  Multiple opportunities exist, such as small group art projects, listening to student readers, helping to organize events, becoming a parent ambassador etc.. 


Dedicated Team

Led by a dedicated and passionate team, we love what we do and it shows.

In coordination with our music teacher the children have the opportunity to participate in three concerts a school year for the parent community. 

“As an American Montessori Society member school, Julia St. Montessori embraces the Montessori method of learning in such a warm, loving space. Our son is thriving in his second year and the teachers are kind, nurturing and dedicated to the school and children. We feel so lucky to be a part of such an amazing community in Julia St. Montessori.”
