Our academic year runs from late August through early June. Full-day and half-day programs are available with a wide variety of schedules and programs. The Highland Park Montessori Schools begins serving children at 6 months of age with our Parent-Child Program. They then progress to our academic programs that include their kindergarten year. The Kindergarten Program is rich in language and math and exposes children to cultural studies and sciences. The children leave our Montessori Kindergarten Program fully prepared for first grade. Highland Park Montessori Schools admit students of any race, color, national, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. They do not discriminate on basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of their education and admissions policies.
