Metropolitan Montessori School

Metropolitan Montessori School (MMS), the only accredited Montessori pre-school and elementary school in Manhattan, serves children between 2 years and 8 months and 12 years old.  MMS instills personal responsibility, critical thinking, resilience and respect for others through:

  • Mixed-age classrooms to foster student mentoring
  • Specialized materials that allow for hands-on exploration and learning
  • Child directed projects
  • Lesson plans catering to the individual child, which allows them to progress at an accelerated pace
  • Community and character building through lessons of grace and courtesy

In today’s fast paced world, we have a wealth of knowledge at our fingertips. Therefore, an education that teaches children how to learn and focuses on perseverance, independence and confidence is valuable. Our educational philosophy is not dedicated to the memorization of facts but instead teaches children how to become life long learners. MMS children learn how to make good decisions; how to organize, plan and self-direct their work; how to communicate with a variety of tools and to different audiences; how to adapt and think creatively; and how to reflect, be pro-active, think long-term and improve. MMS graduates attend highly selective public and independent high schools in New York City, and go on to graduate from excellent colleges and universities.”
