Near North Montessori educates the human potential through a partnership between home and school that fosters intellectual growth, independence, responsibility, and a sense of self-worth.

In keeping with Dr. Montessori's goal of making the world a better place for all humanity through education, it is incumbent upon us to prepare our students to be tomorrow's ethical leaders. Near North Montessori graduates are skilled communicators, innovative and creative thinkers, collaborative problem solvers and take responsibility for their actions. Our students consider the interests of others when making decisions and consider the impact of their decisions on the larger community. Our community of parents, faculty and staff models ethical stewardship and promotes an empathetic and compassionate outlook. NNM promotes a culture of high academic standards, strong moral and ethical values and a passion for learning and self-fulfillment.

As you begin or continue your experience at NNMS, you will realize that it's not only what we do, but the intentional way we do it. The outcomes and accomplishments of our students reflect on the success of the programs at NNMS. And we truly believe that our greatest achievements are not that our students excel at standardized tests or get into the city's best high schools, but rather that when they leave here, they are fully engaged in their world and equipped to thrive in whatever direction life takes them.
