The Montessori Residency of Chicago prides itself on encouraging a diverse community of students, families and staff. We respect differences of race, gender, family structure, socioeconomic level, sexual orientation, and learning styles.
Both our philosophy and curriculum reflect and support our students’ and teachers' heritage and present reality as members of racial minorities in our society while also broadening their appreciation of other cultures and peoples.
We accept each of our students and staff as unique individuals. We refuse to judge ourselves or others based on past personal experiences or others’ expectations. We strive to help our students understand that challenges are not limitations.
Our ultimate goal is to encourage and empower our students and staff to be their best authentic selves, while developing an appreciation and respect for cultural diversity and difference
