Bloomington Montessori School

  • Bloomington Montessori School is a privately funded, not-for-profit school for children ages 3 to 12, preschool through Grade 6.
  • The school was founded in 1968, by a group of parents who wanted Montessori education for their children.
  • The school moved to its present location in 1983 and was expanded in 2004.
  • The building was specially designed to suit the needs of children learning in a Montessori environment.
