Tour All Levels: Toddler, Pre-School & Kindergarten, Lower & Upper Elementary, and Middle School

Our Open Houses are both friendly and informative. Our Head of School and Assistant Head of School give a brief overview presentation. Teachers from every level are also on hand to answer questions and demonstrate Montessori lessons. You may then take a tour of the campus with volunteer parents, students or faculty members. 

Reservations are not necessary for Open Houses, but please be sure to sign in when you arrive. You are welcome to bring your children with you; all applicants will also have the opportunity to visit later during the admissions process.

We look forward to seeing you!

List of 3 frequently asked questions.

  • Q. What's the best age to start at Inly?

    Educators agree that the best time to enter a Montessori program is at the Toddler or Children’s House (preschool) level. Dr. Montessori called the first six years (ages 0–6) a "highly sensitive" period of learning—and the most important years of a student's life. Children who enter Inly by preschool and stay through grade 8 reap the greatest educational benefits.
  • Q. Do you have openings in the older grades?

    Occasionally, but there are fewer and fewer openings as students move up through the levels. Contact our Admissions Office to inquire about current openings.
  • Q. What type of student does well at Inly?

    Young children who are curious, inquisitive and engaged; kind, respectful and empathetic; and responsive to adult redirection are good candidates for Inly. In older children, we look for the same qualities, plus high academic motivation, a track record of interest and engagement, willingness to take on new challenges, and the desire to work independently with teacher support.
