Yellowstone Montessori Academy welcomes children of all races, national origins, and creeds and does not discriminate on the basis of gender, religion or family of origin. We are committed to having a diversified student body for benefit of all. Admissions decisions are based on a first-come first-served basis, depending upon the number of openings available and the schedule requested by the parent(s). Montessori principles stipulate that a class needs to be as closely balanced as possible as to the number and gender of students in each age group. This is difficult to achieve when all of the students do not attend full day programs. Diversity is always an important consideration in the formation of a class community.
