The Montessori School of Rome serves students from 18 months through 8th grade, in a toddler program (18 months - 3 years), a primary program (3-6 years/kindergarten), a lower elementary program (1st - 3rd grade), and an upper elementary program (4th - 6th grade) and adolescent program (7th - 8th grade).
It is a private school emphasizing, as do all Montessori schools, peace and tolerance.
