Who We Are

LAMB PCS (Latin American Montessori Bilingual Public Charter School) is the only Spanish-language immersion Montessori school in D.C. We are one of just a handful of such schools in the U.S. We educate PreK3 through 5th grade students from all D.C. wards and backgrounds. LAMB has three locations—two in Brightwood (NW, Ward 4), and one in Brookland (NE, Ward 5).

“The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.”

Dr. Maria Montessori

LAMB’s mission has two parts. We want to instill a love of learning in our students at the same time that we help them become fluent in both English and Spanish. To achieve both these goals, we use the Montessori curriculum and do dual-language immersion, in which we teach in English and Spanish.  


LAMB follows the Montessori model of mixing children who are close in age together in multi-age communities (classrooms). This structure lets students experience being part of the youngest, middle, and oldest group in a community. Each of these experiences help students grow. We have a program for each of these clusters :

Primary (PreK3 - Kindergarten)

LAMB has nine Primary communities serving students ages three to six.

Lower Elementary (1st - 3rd Grade)

LAMB has eight Lower Elementary communities serving students ages six to nine.


Upper Elementary (4th - 5th grade)

LAMB has five Upper Elementary communities serving students ages nine to twelve.

Extended Learning Day

In addition, LAMB offers before and after school care for a fee.
