NNM's Alumni are our Greatest Accomplishment

For over half a century, Near North Montessori School has been changing lives. Our alumni have gone on to be successful artists and entrepreneurs, chefs and CEOs, doctors and lawyers, archeologists and investment bankers, parents and life-long learners. They credit Near North with instilling in them a sense of self, community, and inherent curiosity—all from cutting carrots, creating timelines, going camping, and running a micro-economy.

What students begin at NNM leads to a life of focus, service, and limitless achievement. That's why our alumni are NNM's greatest accomplishment.

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.

When our 8th graders graduate and leave our school, they have become lifelong learners with a strong sense of integrity and community. They demonstrate concern for others, civility, and positive leadership skills.
