My name is Julie Baker and I'm the principal of JPS Montessori school. I am a graduate of Jackson High School, and have been a proud member of the JPS family for over 20 years as both a teacher and administrator. On behalf of my staff, I’d like to welcome you to JPS Montessori School. We are located in JPS Montessori Center, a beautifully renovated building near Henry Ford Allegiance Hospital.. JPS Montessori School is unlike any other program in Jackson. We offer Montessori instruction, tuition free, for students in kindergarten through grade four. Our teachers have developed beautiful learning environments with students in mind, complete with a full assortment of Montessori materials and desks and chairs made from natural wood. During daily work sessions, students explore and learn within these environments at their own pace while teachers act as guides, providing instruction to students that meets their individual needs;achieving academic excellence and a lifelong love of learning.
