Founded in 1979, Desert Montessori School serves children ages 2-12. We are located in the heart of Santa Fe, New Mexico just off Canyon Road, the famous art district with over 100 galleries, studios, boutiques and restaurants in one half mile. We are surrounded by mountains, big sky and beautiful light. We are close to the Santa Fe River, hiking trails and the Randall Davey Audubon Center and Sanctuary.
Our Toddler and Primary classrooms offer an authentic Montessori foundation. As children transition to the elementary years, we begin to integrate the Montessori philosophy and method with research-based educational practices honoring individual learning styles while preparing students for future success. Our students are active participants in academically rigorous classrooms. We provide a purposeful, engaging education that inspires love of learning, fosters independent thinking, social responsibility and self-confidence.

We offer a competitive salary, ongoing professional development opportunities, a generous classroom materials and curriculum budget, and a strongly supportive community of devoted colleagues and families.
