J.J. Hill Montessori School has been an International Peace site since 1992. Our Montessori students immerse themselves
in learning with assistance from highly trained and certified Montessori teachers. Students at J.J. Hill use hands-on materials
to establish critical thinking skills and respond to real-world issues. Through multi-age classrooms, students develop
relationships with the same teacher and the same community of students over a two- to three-year period. The outdoors
is integral to our Montessori experience as well. On-site gardens allow students to observe nature, and our award-winning
running club gets kids moving throughout the neighborhood. Artists in residence help celebrate the richness of our
Montessori philosophy and the diversity of our community. Our active Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) sponsors numerous
field trips, including a camp experience that allows students to experience an extended overnight trip in the countryside.
