What is Drummond Montessori?
Drummond Montessori is a unique CPS magnet school that has been educating students using the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori for 10 years. Students are encouraged to become independent learners, critical thinkers and active members of our global society. Drummond provides a free Montessori education--that is typically only in private schools.
As a CPS school, Drummond has to deal with a dwindling school budget, and the uncertainty of whether we will be able to fund the resources needed to provide our children with the quality education they deserve.
Who are we?
Friends of Drummond (FOD) is a 501(c)(3) parent-run organization whose sole mission is to raise money to support Drummond Montessori School. We accomplish this by developing, marketing and managing fundraising events and activities. Our needs continue to grow as we face a major challenge, but with your generous support FOD is dedicated to ensuring the programs and people that makes Drummond special.

What are our funding commitments?
Last year we raised a net of $99,000, and a total of $100,000 was granted to fund the library, music and a TA position. For the 2015-16 school year we expect to need about 40% more money to fully fund our school to the current or better levels.
