Brooklyn Heights Montessori School is the perfect melding of amazing educators, engaged students, and families who want the best for their kids and the community. Here, you’ll find young learners beginning on the path of a curiosity-filled education and students of every age being empowered with rigorous academics and extraordinary problem-solving skills to succeed in high school, college, and beyond. They are taking on global issues, investigating and connecting one subject to another. They are learning to work with others and raise each other up.
Welcome! We are a school of young leaders and future world-changers, all empowered by a community of enthusiastic teachers, staff and families. We can’t wait to meet you!
We are delighted that you are exploring these pages and learning a bit about our unique, engaging, and welcoming school. Our large, beautiful building is an exciting hub of learning and discovery, nestled in the heart of Cobble Hill. We are committed to helping students become life-long learners and preparing them for high school and beyond. Our program is firmly grounded in Montessori philosophy, a 100-year-old framework for a robust and integrated curriculum based on child development. That philosophy is our starting point, the foundation from which we incorporate all the best thinking in brain research, best practices in education, and all the important skills that kids need to be successful in our complex, ever-changing world.
At BHMS, we believe that school should be dynamic, interesting, and always joyful.
We believe that it is important to create diverse communities where kids can be their full selves and ultimately find their voice.

We also believe that educational excellence goes hand in hand with social emotional awareness and that competence in both areas is essential for our students to become thoughtful, respectful, and confident young adults and world citizens.
Come visit and see for yourself how BHMS is an extraordinary place for children to learn and grow.
