Silver Bow Montessori School was established in 1988 as a preschool in the building currently operated as Fred’s Mesquite Grill in Butte, Montana. The school was located in turn at three locations throughout Butte.
In 2001, the school moved to its current location at 1800 Sunset in Butte, where two early childhood classrooms currently operate in a 2,130 square foot facility on over five acres of landscaped grounds. Since moving to the Sunset Road location, the school has developed an additional 940 square foot classroom building for the Early Elementary (grades 1 through 3) and 670 square foot classroom building for the Upper Elementary (grades 4 through 6), for a total of 3,740 square feet of classroom space.
The school received 501(c)3 non-profit organization status on August 29, 2002.
