Rogers Park Montessori School (RPMS) is an independent not for profit elementary school and located in the Andersonville neighborhood on the north side of Chicago, that enrolls children from age 2 through 8th grade.
At Rogers Park Montessori School, we believe all children carry within themselves the adults they will become, and we envision a world where a child’s education allows that adult to emerge and grow. Using the Montessori philosophy of education, our school community inspires each child to reach their highest potential, as an individual and a learner, and to become a vital member of the global community. We are guided by the progression of peace: within self, relationships, school, community, and ultimately, peace throughout the greater world.
Founded in 1966, we serve 400 students with an experienced and dedicated faculty. Our teachers hold Bachelor's or Master's Degrees, are Montessori certified, and have many years of in-class experience.
RPMS is accredited by the American Montessori Society (AMS) and the Independent Schools Association of Central States (ISACS) and is recognized by the Illinois State Board of Education. The early childhood program carries the Gold Circle of Quality awarded by the State of Illinois' ExceleRate program, and the toddler program is licensed by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS).
