At Breakthrough Montessori Public Charter School, we believe in the unbounded potential of all children. Students of all races, classes, genders, abilities, and backgrounds deserve a personalized education that enables them to shape their world and the world around them.


“The child is capable of developing and giving us tangible proof of the possibility of a better humanity. He has shown us the true process of construction of the human being. We have seen children totally change as they acquire a love for things and as their sense of order, discipline, and self-control develops within them....

The child is both a hope and a promise for mankind.”
— - Maria Montessori in Education for Peace

We support ALL children. We believe every child is capable of self-construction and deserving of profound respect.

We support ALL families. We serve not just the whole child, but the whole family. We welcome all families and partner with them to create a robust network of support. We listen to -- and honor -- each person’s narrative. We respect difference of beliefs, but require behavior that protects all children and families.

We strive for equity. We seek to provide public Montessori education to a greater number of families, and we actively work to close the opportunity gap. In our pursuit of equity, we strive to meet the needs of children and families by challenging systemic oppression and marginalization.

We believe in education for peace. Our vision of education is deeply linked to a vision of social reform driven by the power inherent in children. By following children, attending to their needs, respecting their interests, and guiding their growth, we come to see the possibilities of a better world.
