Cleveland Montessori has unique programs for children from preschool to middle school designed to develop a life-long love of learning.

Located in the heart of Cleveland’s Little Italy, our school is based on the principles of Italian educator and physician, Dr. Maria Montessori. Her philosophy is best expressed in the words of a child: “Help me … to do it myself.”

Students at Cleveland Montessori achieve excellence — in math, reading, geography, social studies, writing, and science. Enrichment programs range from drama club, sports and Italian …to instrumental music and art. Before and after school programs, from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., accommodate schedules for working parents.
