Welcome to Bright Water!
We inspire passion for learning in an intentionally diverse Montessori community of children from 16 months to the 6th grade. We nurture independence, a love of learning, self-esteem, cooperation, creative thinking, and respect for self and others.
We are two schools in one:
Elementary Board Elections and Annual Meeting April 24!
Parents and community members are always welcome to our Elementary board meetings, but the Annual Meeting is special. The Annual Board Meeting is a community event, we NEED you! Our bylaws require Bright Water Elementary community attendance. Please come to learn about the school's accomplishments and plans for the coming year as well as elect our new board.
