Flint's public Montessori program is housed within Durant Tuuri Mott Elementary (at 1518 University Ave. next to the Flint Children's Museum and Kettering University). The 2019-20 program offers Montessori elementary classrooms serving grades Early K-4 and a pre-kindergarten class. Our vision is to continue to add grades through at least middle school. Students must turn 5 by December 1 in order to be part of the Early 5/kindergarten class.

The Flint Montessori Program's Expectations for Montessori Classrooms
Public education and Montessori education can be effectively blended, and we want families to know what that means for our program when they enter. Our families and staff have worked together to define what the Flint Montessori program means when we call ourselves a public Montessori program. You can read that for yourself here.
