At the Elizabeth Ann Clune Montessori School of Ithaca, students ask questions every day and find answers through the exploration of materials and in collaboration with peers.

They learn what it means to be a good citizen by caring for themselves and each other, and develop a sense of ownership and responsibility for their planet and all the beings who inhabit it. Our students hone their skills by engaging with respectful educators whose mission it is to bring all students to their highest potential every day.

EACMSI, established in 1979, is a non-profit educational organization offering classes for 3-6 year olds, 6-9 year olds, 9-12 year olds, and 12-15 year olds.

The school has a non-discriminatory policy regarding the race, religion, and national origin of its students and faculty.

    Classroom Observations

    EACMSI is organized into three Primary classes, which includes both a half-day and full-day program, three Junior Level Classes, an Upper Level Program, and a Middle School program.

     Classroom observations are scheduled on Thursday mornings, beginning the third Thursday in October through the beginning of May.

    Parents are encouraged to make an appointment to observe their children in action.
