  • Nokomis Montessori proudly serves students in grades PreK-5 on the East Side of Saint Paul.

  • 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 environments; students use hands-on materials to practice and understand skills and concepts.

  • Teachers are Montessori-certified and use the Montessori philosophy to guide instruction.

  • Nokomis Montessori has an active PTO that provides many opportunities for families to be involved each year.

  • Community-building activities include the PTO Fall Festival, Hmong New Year, PTO Family Craft Night and Fun Fair. 

We offer:

  • Pre-K (full-day)

  • Discovery Club (fee-based, off-site)

  • Extended Day for Learning (EDL)
