Gateway's busy Parent Guild is always looking for organization leadership and special event chairs! Please contact the school office to learn more about leadership opportunities.

Gateway Montessori was established in 1970, the centennial year of Maria Montessori’s birth. Realizing the value of Dr. Montessori’s insights, a group of parents met and studied the Montessori Method. Gateway Montessori is a non-profit, non-denominational education corporation chartered and licensed under the laws of the state of Michigan.




We welcome parents, grandparents, family, and friends to volunteer at school and for special events and projects. INTERESTED? Visit the Parent Guild web page or call the school office for information about volunteering.

At Gateway Montessori, we believe that by encouraging an enthusiasm for learning, and by building self esteem, independence, and creativity, we are preparing the child not just for school, but for life. We provide a quality, personalized, nurturing atmosphere in which these attributes can develop and a philosophy that values the uniqueness of each individual.
