Desert Sky Montessori (DSM) invites you to be a part of an exciting Montessori charter school in its fourth 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 K through 3 and their families. In its second year DSM opened another non-profit, DSMP, which opened the doors for 3 and 4-year-old children to join the primary classroom. Desert Sky now offers places for children in Preschool through 6th grade.
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.
