About The School

School Mission
City Garden exists to redefine education by developing the whole child in an excellent, inclusive, Montessori school; to reimagine community by creating spaces and systems that help to restore our collective humanity; and to reinvigorate our world by creating a culture in which individuals and community thrive without disparities or barriers to success.
Quick Facts
  • Our incorporation of The Montessori Method, a model of education through hands-on, sensorial learning and our pledge to serve the neighborhood and address inequity by being more than just a classroom – but by being a community.
  • Our intentional commitment to Anti-Bias, Anti-Racism programming through classroom education, staff professional development, and community learning opportunities.
  • Our robust Family Support Program, providing one on one counseling and individualized care plans, annual hearing, vision, and dental screenings, and social/emotional learning experiences from a licensed social worker.
