Brooklyn Heights Montessori School is a diverse community committed to educational excellence, serving students in preschool through grade 8.


The continuity of BHMS’s Montessori program makes us unique in the New York Independent School world. BHMS is an independent Montessori school maintaining dual accreditation, by both the American Montessori Society, and the New York State Association of Independent Schools.

We are proud to offer a consistent Montessori curriculum to children from two years old through eighth grade. We believe that our Montessori approach from Preschool through Middle School provides an exceptional and liberating foundation for children as they prepare for high school and life beyond.

Each Montessori program at BHMS, from the Twos through Middle School, builds upon the previous program and provides a foundation for the next. By graduation from eighth grade, students at BHMS have experienced the myriad of advantages a comprehensive independent Montessori education of the highest quality offers.

BHMS uses hands-on academic skill building to make learning deep, rich and meaningful. Fully integrating our global curriculum, we expose students to the world as a classroom. We utilize mixed-age learning to build self-confident, thoughtful and empathetic leaders. Grace, courtesy and peaceful conflict resolution are skills taught throughout our 12-year program.
