Cultivating a vibrant and peaceful future.....today!

Situated in the Johns Landing area of SW Portland, along the 43 Macadam corridor, Sunstone offers a comprehensive Montessori education for children from 16 months old through 6th grade.

Children are grouped in mixed age classrooms and stay with the same teacher for three years before moving to the next level. Our Toddler program starts at age 16 months, our Children's House program, serves children ages 3 to 6 years, and our Elementary program serves children in the 1st through 6th grades.

Sunstone provides interactive environments where hands-on exploration engages the mind; interactive environments where learning becomes a process of self-motivated curiosity and discovery; interactive environments where children cultivate a lifelong love of learning along with the higher-cognitive brain functions critical for advanced problem solving and lifetime success.

You won't be disappointed!

I could not be more satisfied with the education my two children receive on a daily basis at Sunstone Montessori. This is the start of their 4th year at the school, and with each passing week, month, and year I am reaffirmed that they could not be in a better place. All of the guides and assistant guides are skilled, dedicated, passionate, caring, and provide individualized attention to each and every child. Not only are my children learning fundamental and challenging math and science principles, but their reading, (cursive) writing, and research abilities are extremely impressive: This is all due to the excellent teaching methods and materials at Sunstone, but also the nurturing learning environment that is fostered. I always feel that my children are seen and treated for who they are as a whole person, not just a "number." Perhaps the greatest attribute of Sunstone is the cultivation of a life-long love of learning, curiosity, and independence. Attending Sunstone also strongly supports our family values, teaching our children to be caring, compassionate, citizens and community members, with confidence and respect for self and others. I find all of the administrative and support staff to be extremely friendly, helpful, essential, and supportive of the children's needs and the school's mission. And the head of school is a fervent and inspiring leader, with a strong vision for the school's future, yet personable and connected to the staff and students on a daily basis. I could go on and on and on singing Sunstone's praises, but suffice it to say if you are looking for an extraordinary school to send your child to, give Sunstone a try - I promise you won't be disappointed!

Nurturing Environment!

I can honestly say that my son LOVES going to Sunstone each day, and his wonderful guides have supported his natural curiosity and passion for learning. One aspect that separates Sunstone from other schools is that it is a very warm and loving environment.

My son's guides (and assistant guides) are not only highly experienced and phenomenal at their jobs, they're also very sincere and authentic people who care about the well-being of my son.

The cost of tuition can be an obstacle for some families, but the school has been very generous with it's financial aid to families. My family has had to make some sacrifices in order to allow my son to attend Sunstone, but I have no doubt in my mind that it has been well worth it for this opportunity. Within this environment he is becoming a confident and capable person, and a compassionate one as well.

Love Sunstone!

We could not ask for a school environment that is more emotionally, socially, and academically supportive than Sunstone. The guides and staff have supported our daughter in becoming a compassionate and courteous child, a learner filled with curiosity and wonder, and an advocate for her own needs as well as those of her friends. The development we have seen since she began at Sunstone 2.5 years ago is incredible.

My children have thrive

In the 4 years at Sunstone, I have seen my children grow personally and academically. They have become independent thinkers ready to take on the world. I appreciated Sunstone being there when we transitioned to Portland. It made the landing soft and pleasant.
