West Side Montessori

Gamble Montessori Elementary School is opening August 2019 at the former home of Gamble Montessori High School on Felicity Place — helping the demand for Montessori education on Cincinnati's West Side.

The school will open with three Montessori preschool classrooms, one 6-9 Montessori classroom and one 9-12 Montessori classroom.

Gamble Montessori Elementary School’s enrollment will grow each year. CPS will include eight existing traditional preschool classrooms into the Felicity Place building; four preschool classrooms already are located at Felicity Place and four will move from Westwood School.

Mission and Vision

"The education of even a small child, therefore, does not aim at preparing him for school, but for life."

 —Dr. Maria Montessori

Montessori education focuses on the needs of the child and respect for oneself, each other and the environment. Montessori children grow to think critically, work collaboratively and act boldly with integrity.

Gamble Montessori Elementary is proud to be the newest Cincinnati Public Montessori School. We would love to have you join us!

School Visits and Tours

We welcome visits from parents and guardians as well as prospective families who would like a tour. To protect student safety, all visitors must register in the office before going to the classroom. Parents/guardians who would like a conference with their child's teacher must schedule an appointment with the teacher.

We offer monthly tours of our Montessori program. Please choose a date below and call our main office at (513) 363-9600 to schedule.

We look forward to sharing our amazing school community with you!
