Desert Sky Montessori (DSM) invites you to be a part of an exciting Montessori charter school heading into it’s fifth year offering a fully implemented, tuition-free Montessori program. DSM is located in the beautiful Central Oregon community of Bend, just minutes from mountains, rivers, climbing cliffs, and a myriad of other recreational opportunities. Desert Sky opened its doors in 2017 to 105 students in grades Kindergarten through 3rd. DSM now offers places for 172 children in grades Kindergarten through 6th grade. The Bend-La Pine School District has approved DSM to serve children in kindergarten through 8th grade. We are hoping to be able to open the middle school and move onto one campus sometime in the next 5 years.
Desert Sky Montessori is dedicated to providing a nurturing and inspiring environment for students and adults alike. The sponsoring Bend-LaPine School District and the Bend community are very supportive of the school. DSM received an amazing Implementation Grant of $450,000 from the Oregon Department of Education for our start up years, and the classrooms are complete with beautiful Montessori materials and furnishings.
