Brookside Montessori School

  • The Brookside Montessori School began operation in 1974. It was originally located in the borough of Camp Hill in a church, which had a brook running alongside it, which is how the name "Brookside Montessori" originated.
  • The school then moved to a small building on Market Street in Camp Hill, as it had "outgrown" its church setting.
  • As the school continued to grow and thrive, plans were made to move again, this time to a newly constructed building that would have all of the necessary amenities, and that would be able to grow and change with the school's needs.
  • The present building at 3708 Rosemont Avenue was completed in January of 1990.
  • Several additions have been added since that date. Brookside Montessori is an equal opportunity educational institution and will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, or handicap in its activities, programs, or employment practices as required by Title VI, Title IX, and section 504/A.D.A.
