Montessori del Mundo opened its doors in the fall of 2014 with Pre-school (ages 3 and 4), Kindergarten, first and second grade. The school will grow one grade level each year until it reaches full enrollment serving approximately 440 students in ECE-6th grade.
Montessori del Mundo follows the Montessori teaching philosophy and curriculum to provide students with a highly rigorous, developmentally focused, entirely individualized, 21st century education. Montessori del Mundo also implements a research-based Dual-Language model that has as its goal bilingualism and biliteracy for all students. Academic instruction is delivered in both Spanish and English with a focus on building students’ fluency in both languages to prepare them for the bilingual world and workplace of the future.
As a public charter school, Montessori del Mundo receives funding on a per-student basis. Students in the ECE/K program will pay tuition on a sliding scale due to insufficient public funds for these grade levels. Students in first – sixth grade will not pay tuition.
Montessori del Mundo is proud to hold the titles of many firsts:
- First charter school approved in Aurora since 2008
- First charter school in Aurora approved to be a part of the Charter School Institute
- First public Montessori school in Aurora
- First school ever approved unanimously by the APS school board
While there is no asbestos detected anywhere in the school we are still required to carry an asbestos management plan. This plan can be reviewed upon request at the main office.
