Welcome to Casa Esperanza Montessori Charter School, a non-profit Public Charter School (K-8) and private preschool! Our approach to education uses a unique dual-language curriculum that strives to cultivate our students to become tomorrow’s global leaders. This approach affords cognitive and academic benefits to build a foundation for lifelong success.

At Casa, students develop a world view that is both practical and thoroughly inspirational. Because of our Montessori philosophy our students are creative, independent learners and self-directed problem solvers. With our multicultural options, families may choose a Spanish immersion speaking curriculum, or a significantly useful Spanish enrichment curriculum.

We also cultivate an environmental consciousness  — from the preparation of snacks and lunches, to the energy-efficiency projects in science class. Our classrooms give students the cognitive, academic, and social benefits that foster unique learning, responsible behavior, and lifelong success.



Our multi-age programs include children in pre-K through Middle School (8th grade).  Our classes are directed by trained Montessori directors/directresses (teachers) and paraprofessionals (teacher assistants). Our school includes a community of 375 students from culturally diverse families united by their educational, social and ethical high standards.
