This isn’t just about choosing a school. It’s choosing how much joy your child will find in the process of discovery. How your child will view themselves, their peers, the needs of the others and the planet. How they will work together and problem solve with enthusiasm. Choosing Brooklyn Heights Montessori School is about choosing to give them the freedom to think deeper and ask more and turn failures into learning moments and work creatively to succeed in an ever-changing world. We are celebrating 55+ years of introducing children to the pure joy of learning, and we can’t wait to meet your family, too.

The 2023-24 Admissions Season opens September 6!

We are committed to making the 2023-24 Admissions experience welcoming, informative, and provide you an opportunity to get to know the school. We are offering several Virtual Information Sessions to all families exploring BHMS and small in-person tours to families who have started the application process. We encourage you to attend a Virtual Information Session, take a tour, explore our website, email us with questions, and see for yourself all the BHMS and Montessori education has to offer children from age two through the eighth grade.

We are proud that BHMS is the only preschool through 8th grade school in New York City to be jointly accredited by the New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS) and the American Montessori Society (AMS). The School is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and the Independent Schools Admissions Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY). We are also proud of our recruitment efforts with Early Steps and Prep for Prep.


Throughout the Admissions section, you will find information about the programs, tuition, financial aid, and forms. The FAQ section will answer questions about age requirements, application deadlines, as well as provide other useful information.

Are you curious what a BHMS education might look like for your child? Reach out! We are here and would love to meet you.
