About Urban Montessori
Urban Montessori is a K-8 charter free public school located in Oakland for grades K-2. Our charter was approved by ACOE on October 11, 2011. Our school is based on the teachings of Maria Montessori, Design Thinking and Arts Integration. Our school will be located at 5328 Brann Street in Oakland near Mills College.

We are intent on creating a truly inclusive school community reflective of the racial and socioeconomic diversity of Oakland. We recognize that creating a truly inclusive and respectful community where all students achieve, differences are valued, voices are heard, and power is shared requires constant dialogue and hard work; that we must create the safe spaces to openly check each others’ biases and assumptions, talk openly about power and privilege, and ultimately become models of the society and community we wish our children to become part of. We put these values forward in hopes that families choosing to apply to Urban Montessori share these values and goals.
