Nokomis Montessori proudly serves the East Side of St. Paul with two campuses. Both campuses serve students in grades
PreK-5. Students living in Area A or Area C (East Side of 35E) attend North campus. Students living in Area B attend South
campus. Our school is based on the Montessori method: students learn at their own pace in multi-grade classrooms,
independently cultivating their interests and natural abilities. Teachers help students choose their work in carefully prepared,
peaceful environments; students use beautifully designed hands-on materials to practice and understand skills and concepts.
Teachers are Montessori certified and use the Montessori philosophy to guide instruction. Nokomis has an active PTA that
provides many opportunities for families to be involved each year, with community-building activities such as the PTA Fall
Festival, Hmong New Year, PTA Family Craft Night, and Fun Fair.
