The Sojourner Truth School prepares students to know who they are, what they want, and where they are going. Students explore their personal interests through unique passion projects and business enterprises such as our farm. Truth is D.C.'s first public Montessori middle and high school, but no previous Montessori experience is necessary. All are welcome! Truth is committed to celebrating the uniqueness of every individual and engaging in anti-racist and anti-bias work at all levels.
Our mission is to empower students to transform the world, and students at Truth will graduate ready for success in college, career, and life. They will serve as active agents in the construction of peace, and they will be able to walk into any space, find their place, and make a powerful contribution.
We achieve our vision through a Montessori education that fosters student-led classrooms through appropriate environmental structure, enables students to engage in meaningful work with real world applications, and offers a close-knit community where students pursue justice and practice stewardship.
