THE IVY SCHOOL
A Public Charter Montessori Elementary and Middle School in Portland, Oregon
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT THROUGH JULY 26 (AND BEYOND)
Ivy has found a new home at 5420 N. Interstate Avenue! It’s clear that this is the perfect place and the perfect time for the community to come together under one roof to learn, grow and thrive. Before that can happen, we need to enlist your help! Between TODAY and JULY 26, we need to raise $500,000. Yes, it’s a big goal. Together we can reach it through the many arms of our Capital Campaign Cash Drive. Below you will find many ways to give. Donors who give $500 or more to any campaign receive recognition on our Founders Wall, and your donation is tax-deductible.

THE LOVE OF LEARNING
Montessori curricula are intended to appeal to the child’s innate hunger for knowledge. Children learn to love learning. Traditional curricula focus on standardized test performance and grades. Children learn because it is mandatory.
Montessori curricula expand in response to the students’ needs. Traditional curricula are predetermined without regard to student needs.
In Montessori schools, “grade-levels” are flexible and determined by the child’s developmental range. In traditional schools, grade levels are more strictly defined by age within a twelve-month period.
