Welcome to Khalsa Montessori School. If you are looking for conscious childcare, an excellent school, an alternative choice in education, a caring network of friends and extended family, or a supportive workplace where you can make a difference, you’ve come to the right place. Regardless of what brought you here, we invite you to learn with us, grow with us, and work with us to serve the children, our future. Khalsa Montessori School is a dynamic community of faculty and families working together to provide a nurturing home away from home where children can learn, discover their own talents and abilities, appreciate the unique gifts of others, explore the amazing world we share, realize their potential to contribute.

Khalsa Montessori School has been serving the Tucson area since 1975 and currently serves about 350 children on two beautiful campuses. Our programs include year-round preschool and childcare (birth to 5 yrs.), a free public charter school for grades k-8, as well as school-age before-and-after-school programs and summer enrichment classes. Khalsa Montessori School is designed to support the whole child–academic excellence, nurturing relationships, creative expression, physical activity and healthy habits.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about each of our programs and campuses.  Please contact us if you would like more information or would like to enroll a child at Khalsa Montessori School.
