Hope Montessori Academy in Des Peres is well-situated for commuting families.
Our Des Peres campus is located on Barrett Station Road just north of Dougherty Ferry Rd., 1 mile west of Highway 270. The campus serves families from neighboring communities as well as those commuting north and south along I-270, and into and out of St. Louis City along highways 64 and 44.
While ease of access is ideal for parents, our Montessori program is proven to be ideal for your child’s development. Our Montessori-certified teachers create a warm, nurturing environment conducive to learning based on the “whole-child approach,” the foundation of the Montessori program.
Through individualized instruction, our teachers help your child discover their special gifts and talents while also instilling a sense of respect and caring for others.
The school serves children between the ages of 6 weeks and 6 years. Our low student-to-teacher ratio exceeds state requirements.
