  • "Montessori education is one of the oldest and most widely implemented pedagogies in the world, and for the first time in the history of St. Louis City adolescents are receiving this world-renowned education. Montessori adolescent environments are designed to meet the developmental needs of students in order to help them reach their unique potential while seamlessly transitioning from childhood to adulthood."
  • "From a foundational academic core of math, science, and the humanities, students venture beyond the walls of the classroom to discover and investigate concepts in real-world applications. These meaningful, hands-on experiences open the door for further student-led study and analysis. The combination of academic lessons with the experiential learning process allows our students to internalize the intellectual ideas they are exploring."

  • "Strategically situated in Grand Center, the heart of St. Louis’ arts community, MAP St. Louis is surrounded by world-class education, art, research, culture, and innovation in tech and bioscience."
  • "At MAP St. Louis, key concepts are taught in our three-year, mixed-age classroom, but we know that the real discoveries and the potential for true innovation occurs when the students are exploring and collaborating beyond the walls of the classroom. Students participate in this type of expanded learning through community engagement and the development of mutually beneficial partnerships with St. Louis’ dynamic and diverse organizations, businesses and professionals."

  • Parent Involvement: Winter or spring fundraising event, driving for outings/trips, trip(s) chaperon, open house parent volunteer, after-school club volunteer, after-school club advisor, expert in the field—willing to let students visit your place of work or willing to come speak about your area of expertise.
Principal: Sara Krenski (since 2016)
