- We are so excited about our first place finish in the Best of Santa Fe 2012!  We are continuing our ‘Refer-A-Family’ program.  If you refer a family to the school and they decide to enroll their child or children in the school, you will receive $250/child off your tuition or aftercare for one month.  To qualify, the enrolling family must not need financial aide and must be enrolled for a minimum of two months before you receive your discount.  The program began August 22, 2011 and is not retroactive.

We are currently enrolling students for Academic Year 2012-2013 in our Preschool, Kindergarten and Elementary School classrooms.

Desert Montessori Preschool and Elementary is located at the top of Canyon Road at 316 Camino Delora.
