NNMS Commitment to Diversity:

At the heart of Montessori philosophy is the belief that every child is a unique individual with specific needs, identities, talents and backgrounds. It is with this philosophy in mind that NNM community embraces diversity and inclusion as central tenets.

Diversity, in its most simple form, means difference. At NNM, diversity includes race, ethnicity, religion, family composition, family traditions, sexual identity, ability, political affiliation and socioeconomic status.

While we seek to respect all differences that community members find meaningful, we ultimately believe that our diversity at NNM is possible because of a key similarity: shared values. All students of different religions, race and ability experience equity in education because of a shared respect for learning within our diverse community in which ideas are freely exchanged.
