Jack JoseWelcome to Gamble Montessori

The faculty and staff of Gamble Montessori High School are committed to developing students into thoughtful, intelligent and inclusive human spirits who contribute to the stewardship of our community and our planet. Using Montessori principles, we create an enriching, diverse and nurturing environment that helps students achieve limitless potential. While we are justifiably proud that our work earned us an "Excellent" rating on the 2012-2013 state report card, and that we earned an "A" in value-added the following two years, it is our students' spirits, and not merely their test scores, that remain our priority.

We have high expectations of all our students and we teach them to have high expectations of themselves. We offer a rigorous college preparatory program that marries academic concepts with real-world experiences to help students appreciate their role in our society. Students also are challenged creatively through a strong fine arts program that includes visual art, ceramics, band, steel drums, and choir. In addition, students participate in community service projects and a variety of field experiences with businesses and organizations throughout our city and around the US.

Inside every child is a natural ability to learn. At Gamble Montessori, we nurture that ability so that students develop a lifelong passion for learning and gain the confidence they need to thrive in an ever-changing world.

The Gamble Creation Story (as told at the Know Theater)
Jeff Groh and Dave Levy produced trueGAMBLE in the 6th storytelling season at Know Theater. They invited me to tell a story. I told a short version of the Gamble creation story, where I explain how I learned the true spirit of Gamble Montessori.
