Our Mission

The Highland Park Montessori Schools are dedicated to creating an environment where children feel comfortable and are able to learn in a respectful, caring community. To realize this goal we have created Montessori schools where children can be themselves in an atmosphere of freedom and responsibility. They are places where little ones will come joyfully and become absorbed and interested in their learning.

We will help the children become creative, competent human beings who are fully aware of themselves, of others and of the world around them. Our goal is to create a love of learning, self-motivation, increased self-esteem, persistence, concentration and habits of inner discipline and order.
