Welcome to Maitripa Tara School

The Maitripa Tara School’s mission is to support and develop the Good Heart and the potential of all beings, while sharing in a community of care, love, and respect. Founded on the three pillars of wisdom, compassion, and ethics, the school is inspired by a Tibetan Buddhist world view, Dr. Maria Montessori’s pedagogy, and the aspiration to care for and connect to the natural world, to oneself, and to one another.

The Maitripa Tara School located in SE Portland is currently open for visitors and interested families. The application process will begin in the spring. A Preschool environment for children ages 3-6, with a full day program starting September 2024. We are seeking connections with families who appreciate that their child’s education extends far beyond the classroom, and support an approach to learning that extends into homes, families, communities, and the world. Pease come to one of our Open Houses or schedule a Personal Visit. We look forward to meeting you and your family!
