Mission Statement

The mission of Montessori del Mundo is to prepare all students for success in college and the future bilingual workforce and to build a strong, educated, bilingual community.

Vision: Montessori del Mundo graduates will be bilingual, self-motivated, critical thinkers, with a love of learning, who will shape and advance the integrated communities of the 21st century.

Organization History

Efforts to start the school began in 2012 when the school's founder and current principal, Karen Farquharson, recognized the need for an educational program that would meet the needs of a bilingual community and workforce; she wanted to create a school that would develop bilingual and biliterate Spanish speakers through a program that values knowledge of Spanish as an academic language and sees Spanish as an asset to support further education and career success. Karen had been a founding teacher when the now highly-successful Valdez Elementary in northwest Denver initially adopted a dual language Montessori program. She saw in her classroom and school-wide at Valdez the positive impact that a dual language Montessori program had on both native Spanish- and native English-speaking students. She worked for over two years to bring such a program to Aurora and MdM opened in fall 2014 with preschool through 2nd grade. The school has grown a grade per year to reach full build-out in 2018-19 as a pre-k through 6th grade program.

Es una muy buena escuela. Un lugar increíble donde los niños de diversos grupos étnicos pueden sentirse apreciados y que sí pertenecen. En esta escuela la cultura y la diversidad de idiomas son valoradas.

We are so happy with the results we are getting from this school. Our six year old is reading in English and Spanish.... Wow! We love the Montessori learning system.
