Who We Are


Fifty years ago Bellevue Montessori School opened with the mission of providing a beautiful, peaceful, and academically rich Montessori program for the children of the east side.  Today Bellevue Montessori School continues to follow that vision by serving over 200 students on our two campuses.  Our diverse and highly educated staff along with specialists in music, science, Spanish and drama, bring the Montessori curriculum to life and inspire our students to take on new challenges.   Our program has been recognized for excellence in Montessori education as one of only six schools in Washington State with an  American Montessori Society  (AMS) accreditation.  

While Bellevue Montessori School has changed over the years, our goal is still the same – to provide each child an individualized education in a respectful and beautiful, authentic Montessori environment where children are inspired to be lifelong learners.

If you believe as we do, that education shouldn’t just prepare a child for the next test, then come tour Bellevue Montessori School and see how education can prepare your child for success in life.

I look forward to seeing you!
