Welcome to Buena Vista Elementary! We are a public Montessori school located on the west side of Colorado Springs just minutes from downtown, serving students age 3 through 6th grade.
Our vision is to free each child’s potential.
At Buena Vista, students explore their world using all five senses and master skills and concepts through the use of manipulatives. They experience freedom within limits and a sense of order as they learn from each other in multi-age classrooms. They apply their learning to the real-world through our interdisciplinary curriculum, and the uninterrupted work periods give them the opportunity to develop concentration and pursue their interests.
We value the whole child and support our learners in a joyful learning environment where independence, respect, and responsibility are encouraged.
You can find out more about our school by using the link to our webpage on academics.
