Pullman Community Montessori Photo #2 - TEACHERS AS LEADERS & CHANGE MAKERS - Relying on over 100 years of accumulating best practices, Montessori-trained teachers act as learning guides while classroom assistants support classroom culture and are trained interventionists.

Pullman Community Montessori Photo #3 - CULTIVATING COLLABORATIVE LEADERS - We guide students to find their inner leader as they are the change-makers of tomorrow.

Students are well supported while engaging in opportunities to hone their LEADERS skills which are broadly defined in ways that empower them to find their personal leadership style.
Pullman Community Montessori Photo #4 - SELF-EMPOWERED LIFE LONG LEARNERS - Keeping respect for the child's innate curiosity at the forefront, we guide student growth academically, socio-emotionally, culturally, creatively, and physically through adherence to the essentials of the Montessori 'whole-child' educational approach
Pullman Community Montessori Photo #5 - OUR PLACE, OUR COMMUNITY - We engage students with their community's local and natural resources through place-based projects to build real-world connections. This strengthens students' sense of place and identity. We expand our concept of our classroom beyond our school walls to include our local community with wider application to the nation and the globe.
Pullman Community Montessori Photo #6 - FAMILIES AS PARTNERS - Family involvement is crucial to helping a student reach their full potential.
