The Montessori Program: Another Choice in Helena’s Public Schools

Since 1990, Montessori has been a choice for parents and children in Helena ’s public school system. Montessori classrooms are available at Broadwater, Central and Smith schools. Two lower elementary classrooms (grades 1-3) and one upper elementary classroom (grades 4-5) are located at each school.

Participation in the Montessori program is open to all students enrolled in the Helena Public Schools. Enrollment in the program is determined through a lottery drawing for students entering first grade. A waiting list is maintained after the lottery that is held in the spring of each year.
