Maryland Avenue Montessori School is a K3-8th grade neighborhood based school located in the heart of Milwaukee’s historic and culturally diverse East Side. Maryland Avenue School has been a Milwaukee Public Schools site for over 120 years. The school transitioned from a traditional school to a public Montessori program in 2001. We provide a quality education that prepares students for high school and beyond.
Student enrollment preferences for K 3 and K4 are collected each February via the Milwaukee Public Schools Kindergarten Enrollment process.
The Maryland Avenue Montessori age of entry is three. The child must be 3 on or before September 1 of the year of entry.
It does not matter if you apply on the first day or the last day of the window all applications are pooled and sorted in late March. The first enrollment priority goes to siblings of current MAM students, the next ring of enrollments is a percentage of students within our one mile walk zone, the next ring of enrollments is a percentage of our five mile bus zone, all remaining applications are randomly assigned until our slots are filled and the balance of applications are randomly assigned a waitlist position.
You will be notified around the middle of April regarding enrollment status.
One tip: if you are truly interested in a public Montessori education you should list one of our other MPS Montessori Schools as your 2nd and 3rd choice schools. Because enrollment in the later grades is based on a preference for prior Montessori experience; getting a Montessori start gives you a better chance at being able to transfer to MAM should a spot open up.
Once enrollment at MAM is confirmed- a parent/guardian must provide the following documentation to the school PRIOR to the first day of school to secure your child’s spot.
- A certified copy of the child’s birth certificate.
- Proof of Milwaukee residency.
- The child’s immunization records.
- Call MPS Central Services at 475-8467 to receive a booklet about school registration.
