Parents and Community

A home for your child and yourself

Near North welcomes parents, as much as their children, into the school community. We believe that educating a child requires more than the faculty and curriculum at NNM--it requires generous parental involvement.

Throughout the year, parents are encouraged to actively participate in our community: by observing their child at work in the classroom, meeting with teachers one-on-one, through financial contributions, by volunteering time and service with school events, by serving as a leader on the Board of Directors or other committee.

Parents develop strong, meaningful relationships with their children’s teachers. In NNM, they find a place that welcomes their talents, their time, and their inspiration. They build a community of like-minded friends who will share their joys, expand their thinking, and help them along the journey of parenthood.
