About Us

Our original Montessori schoolhouse is an historic brownstone, tucked amid residential and commercial buildings. In 2012 we opened 6 additional state-of-the-art classrooms in the modern residential building, 45 Province.

Our student community embraces a multitude of ethnicities and first or second languages in the home. Our families come from neighborhoods throughout the City and immediate suburbs, including Beacon Hill, Back Bay, North End, South End, Charlestown, South Boston, Brookline and Cambridge and from further afield, commuting to work and to our school. We are first-come, first-enrolled and neither preference nor discriminate in any manner in our enrollment or hiring. Rather, our unique offerings themselves generate the diverse student body that mirrors our values and traditions.
