About Us

The mission of Elm City Montessori School (ECMS), a diverse learning community, is to offer New Haven families a high-quality, public Montessori program for children ages three to thirteen.

Our vision is that ECMS students and graduates will demonstrate creativity, adaptability, compassion, civic engagement and leadership in their communities, and develop within themselves the power to shape both their own lives and the world around them.
