The Ancona School is a Montessori-based, independent school educating children from the preprimary to 8th grade. Ancona educates students to become creative problem solvers, confident risk takers and independent, lifelong learners. Rooted in the Montessori tradition, our child-centered school stimulates the joy of learning and builds a strong academic foundation. We inspire children to nourish their inner lives, find the power in their own voices and strive for justice and peace. In a community of cultural and economic diversity, Ancona cultivates understanding, care and respect for others. Our goal is to produce confident, motivated and self-directed lifelong learners. We respect the innate curiosity of each child and encourage inquiry, exploration and creative expression.
