Tour and Space Availability

Updated as of April 2017

Toddler Community (TC) 

15 to 36 months

Our next projected opening for a new family will be September 2017.

We enroll children when they are 15 to 18 months old in our toddler community. We invite you to complete a Toddler Community Parent Interest Form for these enrollment dates or one further in the future. If available spaces in the Toddler Community are taken before you get a chance to enroll, you may stay on the Parent Interest List for the Children's House program.

Elementary (EL) 

6 to 12 years

The first step to enrollment is to complete a Elementary Parent Interest Form for your child.

For the 2017-2018 school year, we are fully enrolled though always welcome families to complete a parent interest form in the case of unexpected openings.

We have three Lower Elementary classroom communities, each with a mixed-age group of 6 to 9 year old students and three Upper Elementary classroom communities each with a mixed-age group of 9 to 12 year old students. Though many of spaces are filled through re-enrollment, we are often able to welcome new students. If you would like to find out more about our Elementary Program, we invite you to take one of the program tours.

Please contact Elementary Program Director Dawn Cowan at 503-222-1197 to reserve a space on one of our small group enrollment tours or if you have any other questions.

Metro Montessori Middle (MMM)

12 to 15 years

Metro Montessori Middle (MMM) is a mixed age group of 7th, 8th and potentially 9th grades. MMM Application requirements are that the student have a full-day visit, the parents attend an MMM Tour or Open House, and the Application is completed. Priority consideration is given to those who complete these steps by February 16th; admissions decisions are made by the end of March.

If you are interested in enrollment, please complete a Middle School Parent Interest Form and call 971-200-8316 to arrange a tour. Tours include a short overview by a school director, an observation of the middle school community at work, and lots of Q/A time.
