KEMS's Rebrand and Expansion

Over the past seven years the Kid Esteem Montessori School has acted a haven for students who have been beaten down by the public school system. At their previous schools many of our students were bullied, ignored, and made to feel like there was something wrong with them. Here, at KEMS, we celebrate the innate brilliance in every child and create individualized programs to inspire a love for learning and innovation. 

Because we want to be an accessible option for all children, we keep our tuition rates low. Though our enrollment is continuously growing, we cannot afford to keep up with the expenses of maintaining a state of the art learning environment.  

Our motto is "Work Hard and Be Kind!" and we are creating a community of socially-conscious, peaceful, empowered, and accepting citizens.  By supporting this fundraiser you will impact the future leaders of our changing world. The children here are truly magical and any donation will make wishes come true!!! Thank you!
