About Our School

School Day 2023-2024

3 to through 12-year-old children's schedule: 8:40 am - 3:35 pm

The Montessori Magnet School provides a national model for excellent public Montessori education. The school serves the Greater Hartford community, offering a traditional Montessori education for students ages 3-12, extended child care for students participating in the full-day program and a diverse environment in our custom-built school facility.

Students progress academically and socially through an integrated curriculum that combines the Montessori pedagogy with highly effective instructional strategies. Lessons that focus on interdisciplinary and global connections allow students to learn at their own pace, and expand that knowledge beyond the school environment into the greater classroom-the world.

The Montessori Model

This unique approach to learning pairs high, individual challenge, with nurturing support. While each of the classrooms has a unique spirit, all are grounded by the core goals of concentration, coordination, independence, and order.

Located on the Learning Corridor campus, the Montessori Magnet School features state-of-the-art facilities, a beautiful campus across the street from collaborating partner Trinity College, and a diverse community of both students and educators.

In addition to full Montessori work cycles, MMS offers instruction in visual art, physical education, computer science, library and media studies, and music. Elementary students participate in our celebrated strings program and our oldest students perform in a Chamber Ensemble.
