Inly School

An innovative, independent Montessori school on Boston's South Shore, Inly School inspires students to be creative thinkers and self-motivated, lifelong learners.
Our proven toddler, preschool, full-day kindergarten, elementary, and middle school programs are built on the 100-year-old Montessori tradition of deeply engaging students in intellectual work, while stretching their social/emotional resilience and capacity to mature into well-rounded people.
The curriculum goes beyond the national Common Core standards, and features robust experiential learning at every level.
World languages for all ages; and arts-rich, integrated rigorous academics prepare Inly students to be independent, forward-thinking global citizens who succeed at their choice of secondary schools-and in real life.

School Notes

  • Inly School uses a blend of Montessori curriculum and philosophy combined with educational best practices to teach core subjects, world languages, arts, athletics, and life skills.
  • The Inly curriculum is hands-on, experiential, and exploratory. Students are taught to ask questions, seek knowledge, and pursue answers.
  • Above all, they are given opportunities to have a voice and be leaders so they can self-confidently face new challenges in new settings.
  • Teachers individualize the Inly curriculum to help each student work to his or her personal best. This means students can progress through the curriculum at their own pace-whether working above grade level in a particular subject, or taking the time to reinforce learning and skills in another subject.
  • The curriculum is also highly integrated-teachers present lessons that draw on more than one subject to teach skills and concepts and deepen understanding.
