Just Imagine from Baltimore Montessori Charter on Vimeo.

 

The vision of Baltimore Montessori Public Charter School (BMPCS) is to nurture a love of learning in a small, family-like environment by providing an extraordinary and proven Montessori public school experience for families living in Baltimore City.
 
Elementary Mission
Our mission is to build a diverse and respectful community of joyfully engaged learners by providing a holistic Montessori environment that supports individual fulfillment, compassion, self-discipline, lifelong learning and a deep awareness of our responsibility to contribute meaningfully to our world.
 
Adolescent Community (AC) Mission

By integrating meaningful work, relevant academic study and respectful social structure within real-world contexts, we will build an inspiring and cohesive adolescent community of compassionate, creative and responsible learners who have a strong sense of self, critical problem solving skills and the capacity for stewardship and fullness of life.

 
“Our care of the children should be governed not by the desire to 'make them learn things,' but by the endeavor always to keep burning within them the light which is called intelligence.” -Dr. Maria Montessori
 
Baltimore Montessori Public Charter School (PCS) is committed to diversity and equality. Accordingly, the school admits students and conducts all educational programs, activities, and employment practices without regard to race, color, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, ancestry, disability or any other legally protected classification
