Lee Montessori Public Charter Schools
3025 4th St NE
Washington, DC 20017-1101
United States of America

Lee Montessori operates two free, public charter schools that exist to create a more just, liberated world. We are diverse and interconnected communities that redefine high-quality education by pairing Montessori with Anti-Bias/Anti-Racist practices. We create joyful learning environments where children and families flourish and can show up authentically as their true selves.

We innovate by blending conventional educational practices with progressive Montessori principles that release a child’s innate eagerness to learn. Our network of schools is named after Tahiira Lee, a Montessori teacher born and raised in Washington, DC who advocated for more public Montessori opportunities, especially in low-income communities and for students of color.

Scholarship Opportunities

WMI does not offer financial aid but applicants are encouraged to apply for scholarship opportunities through the organizations listed below.

The Margaret Elizabeth Stephenson (MES) Fund

The MES Fund was established in 2000 by AMI/USA to honor Margaret Elizabeth Stephenson, who devoted her life to Montessori teacher training. The MES Fund was the first financial aid fund to benefit AMI teacher trainees in the United States. The MES Fund awards partial scholarships to selected students based on financial need in the form of tuition reduction. The fund ensures that qualified individuals seeking AMI teacher training can pursue their dreams, regardless of their financial circumstances.

The MES Fund is now accepting applications for AMI teacher training courses that begin in 2024. Application deadline is May 1, 2024.

Black Montessori Education Fund

The Black Montessori Education Fund (BMEF) believes that education has the power to positively transform one’s life. Historically within the African-American community, education was seen as a vehicle for liberation. The BMEF envisions an educational approach that places value on the racial, cultural, economic and spiritual background of all and seeks to support the wholistic development of each individual to their fullest potential.
