Guided by the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, Brooklyn Heights Montessori School is a diverse community committed to educational excellence, serving students in preschool through grade 8. At our center is respect for the individual child’s development and potential.
Our carefully designed environment encourages the student’s natural curiosity. We inspire a love of independent learning and foster critical thinking by engaging students in a challenging and meaningful curriculum.
By encouraging personal responsibility, leadership, and respect for self and others, we teach children to be thoughtful and confident citizens of the School and the world.
More on our Guiding Principles
As you read in our Mission, Brooklyn Heights Montessori School is guided by four principles: Montessori, Diversity, Community and Academic Excellence. These principles are intertwined in practice and we recognize that each principle cannot exist without the support of the others.
