Help our Teachers on Donors Choose

Our teachers post classroom project requests on Donors Choose in order to give MSE new and exciting experiences, in and out of the classroom. These projects vary widely, from a request for art supplies to a science-oriented field trip. Donate as little as $1 or the entire project amount to contribute to MSE student experience! Donate Now.

Help our students get the education that they deserve.


As The Montessori School of Englewood develops a proven model for educating and nurturing some of our country’s most at-risk students, the school is seeking your support to give these children the opportunity they deserve. Public funding falls nearly $500,000 short of the bare minimum required to operate the school, with the school also facing many other critical needs. Your generous support will enable the school to:

  • Continue providing a safe, supportive learning environment. The school must raise $450,000 annually for basic operational expenses, such as teacher salaries, supplies and building costs.

  • Grow a much-needed reserve capital fund.  This fund will allow the school to plan long-term, so it can remain a place of peace and stability for students and the community.

  • Improve its food program. For many students, school lunch is the only meal they receive. MSE needs a more robust approach to food insecurity to ensure that no child goes hungry.

  • Hire a school nurse. West Englewood residents have higher rates of chronic illnesses than other neighborhoods, yet they lack access to proper medical care. A full-time nurse can help address these vital needs and minimize health issues that impact students’ ability to learn.

Investing in the school’s future allows MSE, in turn, to create a child-centered environment that promotes peace, learning and positive growth. By providing a Montessori education that’s committed to supporting students’ total well-being, The Montessori School of Englewood is opening up a new world for its students – and providing a blueprint for other communities to do the same.
