Mission & Vision
Lee Montessori exists to create a more just, liberated world. We are a diverse and interconnected community that redefines high-quality education by pairing Montessori with Anti-Bias/Anti-Racist practices. We create a joyful learning environment where children and families flourish, and can show up authentically as their true selves.
Commitment to Equity
Lee Montessori provides a high-quality experience for a racially and socio-economically diverse community with the goal of empowering each child we serve to transform society. We are committed to an anti-bias, anti-racist framework that addresses social inequity through the lenses of race, class, immigration, gender, and LGBTQ identity. Our network of schools is named after Tahiira Lee, a Montessori teacher born and raised in Washington, DC who advocated for more public Montessori opportunities, especially in low-income communities and for students of color.
Lee Montessori is one of only five public Montessori schools in Washington DC and the only public elementary school fully-recognized in DC by the Association Montessori Internationale — USA. We innovate by blending conventional educational practices with progressive Montessori principles that release a child’s innate eagerness to learn.
Lee Montessori PCS offers a competitive compensation and benefits package, including:
Health; Vision; Dental; Retirement; and more.
