About Our School
At Belfair Montessori Magnet School, we are committed to providing children in Pre-K through 8th grade with a quality education in a challenging, yet nurturing environment. We are glad you have taken the time to learn about us. Please revisit our site regularly, as we make frequent updates throughout the school year.
The Montessori philosophy of education is unique, innovative, and students are self-motivated. If you choose Belfair Montessori Magnet, your entire family can stay at one school until they are ready to transition into high school. The Montessori philosophy utilizes a hands-on approach to learning. This means the more a student can touch materials related to a particular skill, the more it is embedded in their mind. The hands help connect the information to the mind. Dr. Maria Montessori said it best, “The hands are the instruments of man’s Intelligence.” We believe this is the best approach to learning. The students will exceed, go beyond, and surpass well above your greatest expectations. So, our goal is to help every child achieve greatness in life. The Montessori program is one of the best-kept secrets in the East Baton Rouge Parish School System.
We love what we do, and we are so glad YOU have chosen to be a part of it! If you have not had a chance to visit our school, we encourage you to come by or volunteer at any time. Together we can achieve great things!

Students can not take the LEAP test from home. The test can only be given on campus. We will not have live virtual classes during testing. Teachers will be unable to login in because if there are too many people on the network, it could slow down the system or cause other problems that may interfere with testing.
Student Progress Center
JCampus Student Progress Center (SPC) is a system that allows parents to view their student’s school information. It is the system that will replace Home Access Center (last year’s parent access center).
Student Progress Center (SPC) updates student data activity as it happens, enabling students and parents to track progress and prepare for success.
Catch up on your child’s homework, check discipline, get teacher comments, see school announcements, owed fees, and so much more.
If you are a parent or guardian, see all of your children from one screen, one login – anytime, anywhere.
