Bloomington Montessori School is a privately funded, not-for-profit school (preschool – age 3 through grade 6). The school was founded in 1968, by a group of parents who wanted Montessori education for their children. The school moved to its present location in 1983 and was expanded for the third time in 2012. The building was specially designed to suit the needs of children learning in a Montessori environment. The school has been a member of the American Montessori Society since 1971. Classrooms are led by certified Montessori teachers.

Bloomington Montessori School is owned by the Bloomington Montessori Association which is composed of parents of children currently enrolled. The governing body is a board of directors, elected each May by the parents. The school gives highest priority to communication between parents and teachers about children’s performance. Teachers expect and welcome dialogue with parents. The school offers equal opportunity to all and is non-discriminatory.
