An Education for Life since 1964

Metropolitan Montessori School, a NYC independent pre-school and elementary school, serves children between the ages of 3 and 12 years and is guided by the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. MMS instills personal responsibility, critical thinking, resilience, and respect for others, giving children a foundation for learning that will stay with them through their lifetime.

Join Our Journey

Watch MMS students and teachers in our nurturing environment telling you what they love about MMS and a Montessori education.


Tour MMS!

New applicants - we look forward to showing you our school through a small tour. We are in the midst of an exciting construction project and therefore would love to show you those plans too. Once your application is in, we will contact you to schedule a tour.

Know and Love a Toddler?

Join us this winter for a fun filled “Parent and Me” class!

Children will participate in various activities such as singing songs, playing with movement, exploring with hands-on materials that develop coordination and independence, and of course, snack!

MMS on Facebook

In light of Thanksgiving we have asked the children what they are thankful for this year. Some responses warmed our hearts while others made us laugh, but all of them put a smile on our faces. A sampling of responses:

"my family because they are nice to me"
"for toys, money, and my house because a lot of people don't have those things"
"I'm thankful for my baby brother in my mom's belly"
"For grandma visiting me because she likes to cuddle."
"I'm thankful for planet earth because it's where we all live."
"I'm thankful for my teachers because they give really good hugs."
"I'm thankful for my daddy because he bought me a really huge garbage truck."
