Philadelphia Montessori Charter School (PMCS) excels at providing children in Kindergarten through 4th grade with a Montessori education in an environment that nurtures the whole child, celebrates inclusion, embraces innovation, and encourages collaboration with families. PMCS ignites the internal spark that leads to social, emotional, and academic success.

Points Of Pride

PMCS has a small teacher:student ratio with an average of 1:13. We have one-to-one technology and a wonderful STEAM program for all students. In 2019 PMCS was recognized by Mayor Kenney for three continuous years of academic achievement!


Admissions Policy

Interested families must submit an application to the school, via applyphillycharter.org. If there are more applications than available seats, a public lottery will be held.
