  • Dear visitor, welcome to the Garfield Montessori Web site! We are a school of nearly four hundred students between the ages of 3 and 14 committed to living and learning the vision of Dr. Maria Montessori. We take great pride in our daily work and our service to the larger Decatur community. We hope you will enjoy viewing our site and will consider visiting our school community to observe our work in action.

    On August 21, 2017, for the first time since 1918, a solar eclipse will be visible on a path across the United States.  Decatur Public School District #61 is planning a viewing opportunity to allow students to experience this once-in-a-lifetime event. The District has been planning to make this event a unique learning experience for our students.
