Lee Montessori was founded in 2014 to challenge inequity and close the opportunity gap in Washington DC. Today, we are a high-performing public charter school in a racially and socioeconomically diverse community, empowering each child we serve to transform society.

 

The Lee Montessori Difference

Lee Montessori’s highly trained instructors provide individualized instruction to each child in an inclusive environment. Our student outcomes exceed national averages because every student is empowered to reach their fullest potential. As one of 5 public Montessori schools in Washington, DC, we closely follow Dr. Montessori’s original principles and vision to create a peaceful learning environment.
