Portrait of a Graduate
Near North Montessori graduates move on to the most academically challenging, competitive selective-enrollment high schools in the city. What’s more important is that they thrive wherever they go.
“Near North helped me become more confident with myself. At Near North, I felt so confident to be who I wanted to be, or what I aspire to be. There was really no judgment. Everyone was so kind and welcoming, and the teachers were so encouraging. So I could be what I wanted to be, and others could as well.”

"The Montessori environment—there is no better way to learn. I realize now after being in the more traditional school system and in the Montessori school system—there is no place like this and no better way to learn"
