Welcome to Appleton Public Montessori

Appleton Public Montessori (APM) is located at 1545 East Broadway Drive, Appleton, WI 54913. We are a charter school within the Appleton Area School District. Our school was started in 2005 to fill a need in the community for an authentic Montessori Elementary School. We started with two classrooms and have grown over the years to have five classrooms.

What is an authentic Montessori education? The Montessori method is a child centered approach utilizing multi-aged classrooms. Each of our rooms offer a prepared environment with specific, hands on, sequential materials. Each child contributes to their learning or work plan by selecting work and concentrating on it for up to three hours during work time. Our students programing also includes Spanish, performing and visual arts and physical and environmental education. We have many goals for the children at APM, but most of all we hope they “learn to love to learn.”


Thank you for supporting the referendum.

As you may already know, the public successfully passed a major referendum for construction regarding the security of our schools. This will require summer construction at several school sites.  The summer school staff is cooperating with AASD facilities to plan and accommodate both the construction and a successful summer school program.  Summer school for high school students will be moved from East High School to North High School for this summer. At other sites, alternate entrances, manned by security personnel, will be utilized. With necessary adjustments, the summer school program will once again be a beneficial opportunity for our students.
