Coulee Montessori Charter School

Preschool through 5th grade housed at Northside Elementary School

Coulee Montessori offers preschools through 8th grade instruction using the Montessori educational philosophy.  The school’s curriculum is based on Montessori founder Dr. Maria Montessori’s belief that children have an innate desire to learn and they will learn best in an atmosphere where learning first occurs on a concrete level.

Students work at their own pace, following an individualized work plan.  The calm, peaceful environment of the Coulee Montessori classrooms develops self-discipline, positive social interactions, independence and responsibility.


  • Promotes child-centered hands-on learning
