Parents choose to enroll at Montessori Regional Charter School for a number of reasons. We are proud to be a part of the Charter School community and to be able to offer Parents and Children, in the Erie Region, a choice in deciding what is best for their education.
Since becoming a public Charter School in 2004-2005, the school has been growing at a fast, but controlled pace and will continue to expand over the next several years. Lead by a Board of Trustees and guided by a faculty that hold both Pennsylvania teaching credentials and rigorous additional Montessori training, the school is committed to the highest quality academic preparation that the Erie region has to offer.
Parents choose a Montessori Education because they want their children to gain a solid understanding of concepts and learn how to solve problems.
