The Ivy School is a public charter Montessori elementary and middle school located in Portland, Oregon.

“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

We offer a tuition-free Montessori education with Spanish study for students in grades 1-8.

Montessori schools have a 100-year-old tradition of world-class education through a thoughtfully prepared classroom environment. Students at Ivy engage in math, language arts, social sciences, physical sciences, Spanish language, music, art, physical education, gardening, community service and more. Montessori classrooms are multi-age, allowing each student to work at their individual level and to become mentors in their classroom community. Students engage in subjects and materials in meaningful ways by following their natural curiosities. This fosters independence, personal responsibility, creative problem solving and care for the world around them.
