We are glad that you have decided to visit our website!  At La Crescent Montessori & STEM School (LMA) we care about each and every one of our students, and think of our school as a community with each member responsible for the well-being of each other and the school.

At LMA, we offer free public school for K through 11th grade with the addition of 12th grade in the 2014-2015 school year.  We are also proud to offer private-pay Preschool for 3 & 4 year olds in our Children’s House environment.

The focus of La Crescent Montessori  is based on the teachings of Dr. Maria Montessori. The Montessori philosophy is a hands-on approach to learning with specialized materials to aid students in understanding both simple and complex concepts.

For grades 7-11, LMA is proud to be the only school in the area to offer an emphasis in the S.T.E.M. study (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). Currently, the STEM focus in class is applying mathematical equations to engineering and earth science topics.  Project Lead the Way- Gateway to Engineering is a rigorous curriculum that uses high quality engineering software.

Please consider exploring all our site has to offer.  If you have any questions, or are considering enrolling in LMA, please contact us for a tour of our facilities so that you can experience the LMA community for yourself.
