At La Crescent Montessori & STEM School (LMSS) we care about every one of our students. We truly build a sense of community where every member is responsible for the well-being of each other and the school.

At LMSS, we offer a world-class educational experience for K thru 12th grade. As a public charter school, this experience is free to all Minnesota residents. Tuition based enrollment is available to non-Minnesota residents.  We are also proud to offer affordable Preschool options for 3 & 4 year olds in our Children’s House classroom.

La Crescent Montessori & STEM is founded on the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori. With a hands-on approach to learning and specialized materials to aid students in understanding both simple and complex concepts, we empower our students to engage with their learning experience at every level.

La Crescent Montessori & STEM is proud to be the only school in the area to offer  S.T.E.M. studies (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) to 7th thru 12th grade. Currently, the STEM focus in class is applying mathematical concepts to engineering and earth science topics. To support this learning experience, we have partnered with  Project Lead the Way-Gateway to Engineering, a rigorous curriculum that uses modern engineering software.
