Who We Are

Monticello Montessori is a public charter school providing a tuition-free, high quality Montessori education to children ages five through 14 in kindergarten through the eighth grades. Located in Ammon, Idaho, we welcome students who live in Bonneville, Bingham, and Jefferson counties to apply to our school.

Our Mission

Through a Montessori-inspired approach to learning, students will maximize their inner potentials and experience purpose and meaning in life, take responsibility for their own education, cultivate personal dignity, and develop independence and purpose in life.

Our Vision

Monticello Montessori students will become critical thinkers and intrinsically motivated learners.

Our History

Monticello Montessori began as the vision of David Meyer, a public school teacher and father of twins with special needs. Witnessing their progress at a private Montessori school was the catalyst that sparked him to create a charter school where many more children could have the benefit of the Montessori approach without high tuition costs. His vision became a reality in the fall of 2010.

Premier Learning Facility

Students attending Monticello enjoy learning at our unique, dome-shaped, energy-efficient building designed to capture abundant natural light and ensure clean ventilation in spacious classrooms.
