Welcome to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Montessori Academy

  • It is with great pleasure to welcome you back for another amazing school year! We are

    “Leveling Up and Unlocking

    our Excellence for the

    23-24 school year!”

    I would like to express my deepest gratitude to our incredible faculty and staff for their unwavering commitment to guiding and nurturing our students. Their dedication has played a pivotal role in our achievements, and their passion for education continues to inspire us all.  As we continue our path to excellence this academic year, I encourage our students to maintain their enthusiasm for learning, and I urge our parents and guardians to continue supporting their learning. Let us join hands in fostering an environment where each student can reach their full potential.As a school, we are working to improve third grade literacy rates from year to year.  When students are reading on grade level, there is no limit to their success in future years in school.  With that said, we blew it out of the ballpark with our math achievement data once again. The school wide   math proficiency in the tested grade levels is 55% with a 5% increase in the FAST PM3 assessments. We went up by 7% in ELA; from 26% to 33%. We also doubled our science scores to 25%.  These are outstanding accomplishments!  I am proud of our students and our faculty for their hard work!  I have no doubt that they will be ready for the challenges that await them.
