Between the open classroom, plethora of materials and the access to a vast woodland habitat, Dupage Montessori School has something for everyone to find their passions and to explore their interests. We are dedicated to offering an individual education rooted in the love of learning and fostering a sense of community.

Amazing school!!! I went here for 4 years, and it was an amazing 4 years. I received a great education and felt prepared for High School. Mr. Adam, Mr. Matt, and Ms. Carol make the Upper El. and Middle School program the apotheosis of education. Everyone is very nice, and the teachers make sure we receive plenty of exercise every day. (through recess!)Thank you, Dupage Montessori!

My child started in the elementary program at DuPage Montessori. The teachers, assistants, and administrators are exceptional; they care about each child who steps through the door. I found the curriculum to be beyond what was being taught to our friends' children who were taking advanced classes across all subjects. Mr. Adam and Ms. Carol created an environment that made learning fun and exciting. The discipline, desire to learn, and self-confidence developed at DuPage has helped my child become a well-rounded teenager who is doing very well academically, has a great group of friends, and is involved on several teams and clubs. Thank you DuPage for a program that exceeded all expectations and that my child remembers with great fondness.

My daughter has attended the Dupage Montessori School for the past three years. She started the Kindergarten program this year and we are more than happy with her academic progress. We have recently enrolled our 3 year old son in the prek program. Both chidren are thriving academically becasue of the Montessori cirriculum. I would highly recommend this school based on their cirriculum, sense of community and wonderful teaching staff.
