To request more information about our school, arrange a tour or to complete the first step towards applying to MMS, please complete our Online Inquiry Form.
There are a number of ways to get acquainted with Metropolitan Montessori School:
Our team welcomes prospective families to attend an Open House. This is a wonderful way to tour our building, meet current students & teachers and receive an overview of programs.
If you are unable to attend the Open House or would like a more personalized experience, we would be delighted to take you and your family on a personal tour of campus at any time throughout the year. Upon completion of the online application, our Admissions staff will be in touch with you to schedule a tour.
Once you complete MMS’s online inquiry form, you will receive an email with a login to our online Admissions Portal. Within this portal, you can complete the online application as well as access the school report forms and track the progress of the admissions process.
*No forms needed for Stepping Stones application
There are two forms to be completed: the release form and the school report.
Release form: Please complete and provide this release form to your child’s teacher so they can release appropriate records to the MMS Admissions Office.
School report: Choose the age-appropriate form below and please provide it to your child’s current teacher, who should mail it directly to: Metropolitan Montessori School Admissions Office, 325 W. 85th St., New York, NY 10024, or via email firstname.lastname@example.org by January 19, 2018.
The early decision program is intended for families of two, three, and four-year-old applicants who know that MMS is their first choice school. This includes sibling and legacy students but is also open to the general applicant pool. If your family chooses to take advantage of the early decision program, please submit an application by December 1. If accepted, deposits will be due at the time of acceptance. If you do not want to take part in the early decision program, the regular acceptance notifications will be released according to the ISAAGNY calendar to the right. Financial aid applicants are not eligible to participate in the early decision program.
If you’re currently based outside of the United States, please see our page for international families, which includes information for applicants who are not able to visit the school.
We require a test report from the Educational Records Bureau for applicants to Grade 2 and higher. For more information, and to schedule a test date, go to the bureau’s online registration portal or call 212-672-9800. Reports are not ready until 6 to 8 weeks after the test date, so it is a good idea to schedule the appointment for early fall.
