Elm City Montessori opened in August 2014 with 70 children ages 3 through 5. It is New Haven’s first public Montessori school, and Connecticut’s first local charter school. Elm City Montessori is a racially and economically diverse New Haven public elementary school serving PreK-3 through 8th grade, where students are guided to make decisions and work to their full potential through an educational program that follows Dr. Maria Montessori’s philosophy. A Montessori school stresses child centered learning, hands-on inquiry, multi-age classrooms, and intensive parental engagement.
