Cincinnati Public Schools Expands Montessori Program

June 12, 2019

Cincinnati Public Schools is expanding our opportunities and options for students and families by growing our Montessori programs — we’re expanding enrollment capacity at the relocated Gamble Montessori High School and opening of the new Gamble Montessori Elementary School, both on the West Side.

Cincinnati Public Schools is the heart of public Montessori education. We’re home to the first public Montessori High School — Clark Montessori High School. One in seven CPS students is enrolled in a Montessori program.

So what is Montessori? Founder Maria Montessori said,  "The education of even a small child, therefore, does not aim at preparing him for school, but for life."

This video explains the teaching philosophy of Maria Montessori and what that means for students, parents and the community.
