Breakthrough Montessori Public Charter School
Breakthrough Montessori PCS is the newest public Montessori school in Washington, DC. Our mission is to provide families in the district with a fully implemented, public Montessori program for children ages 3 to 13 years that enables them to develop within themselves the power to shape their lives and the world around them.
Grounded in the time-tested Montessori model and fueled by a commitment to early learning and family engagement, our model revolves around the needs of learners at every stage of development. Our focus on early support and intervention enables us to address learning challenges before they become disabilities, and our intensive approach to engaging families and communities fosters support, connection, and life-long learning.
In addition to providing public Montessori education to greater numbers of DC families, we are committed to closing the opportunity gap in the district. By focusing on development, prevention, and engagement, our school breaks through economic and social divides to produce transformative outcomes for all students. At Breakthrough Montessori PCS, students will develop the academic and social skills necessary to excel in their future schools, complete post-secondary education, and build rewarding careers and vocations.
Breakthrough Montessori provides a supportive environment for teachers that includes weekly early-release for PD, summer Montessori institute, professional development opportunities with the National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector, and regular observation and coaching.
