Admissions

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Metropolitan Montessori School (MMS)!

It is my pleasure to get to know your family as you embark upon the admissions process. A Montessori education at MMS is about both challenging and supporting the whole child academically, socially, and emotionally. We are a community where parents and teachers work together in close partnerships to understand the development of children. I walked through the front doors nine years ago as a primary teacher, and I was immediately struck by the faculty’s warmth and dedication. I know you will feel the same way.

After seven wonderful years in the classroom, I transitioned to this role because I loved speaking with parents about the growth of their children and introducing new families to MMS. Visit our school and you will immediately start to grasp the power of a Montessori education. Children work independently, engrossed in their activities. As they grow older in their mixed-age-group classrooms, they take younger students under their wing, building a true community. Each day, our children learn how to navigate social interactions, be resilient, peacefully resolve conflict, and value others’ opinions.

We look forward to getting to know your family. Our current parents are happy to talk with you about their experience at our school. Don’t hesitate to contact me at admissions@mmsny.org or (212) 579-5525 ext. 116 if you have any questions as you navigate this process.

Warm regards,

Marielle Lopez

Director of Admissions
