The Bella Mente Mission

The mission of Bella Mente Montessori Academy Charter School is to provide students with the opportunity to acquire an education based on an “authentic” curriculum founded on the educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori.

We intend to promote an educational atmosphere that encourages socioeconomic diversity by providing all students with the opportunity to obtain a quality public education.

Our aim is to prepare each of our students with the skills, knowledge, and values to participate meaningfully in the pluralistic world of the 21st century.

A free public Montessori charter school serving San Diego County.

Our building is a secure facility. In order to ensure the safety and well-being of our students, ID must be shown to pick up your child. All visitors must check in at the BMMA front desk.
