Guided by the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori, Brooklyn Heights Montessori School is committed to education that has at its center respect for each childs development and potential. We foster a lifelong love of learning, individual excellence, and the satisfaction that results from meaningful work. We encourage personal responsibility and respect for self, others, and community. Our children learn to be thoughtful, responsible citizens of the school and the world around them.We are a community of families, staff, and trustees who work together, guided by the needs of our children.
BHMS recognizes that fidelity to Montessori philosophy demands a constant assessment of our practices to ensure that we meet the demands and respond appropriately to our time, place, and culture. We are proud to be an urban, Independent, Montessori school serving children in Preschool through Eighth Grade.
