About Elm City Montessori School
Elm City Montessori School (ECMS) is New Haven’s first public Montessori school and the only local charter school in Connecticut. ECMS proudly opened its doors to 70 New Haven area children in August 2014. This year, we enrolled 229 students in 11 classrooms and aim to grow by 1-2 classrooms each year until we serve 370 students through eighth grade. We offer a high-quality Montessori program focused on academic rigor, child-centered learning, hands-on inquiry, multi-age classrooms, and intensive parental engagement. We are committed to building a school that inspires our community and helps ensure all New Haven children reach their full potential.
