Montessori High School at University Circle

Montessori High School at University Circle

The NAMTA Center for Montessori Adolescent Studies is taking the last steps to complete its mission by establishing Montessori High School at University Circle, Cleveland, Ohio (MHS) which opened in the fall of 2008. MHS offers students an interdisciplinary experience focusing on change, nature, and society in keeping with the themes found in cosmic education and in Maria Montessori’s book Education and Peace. Taking on the academic challenge of the International Baccalaureate Programme, the curriculum weaves academic subjects evolved from within the high school with diverse specialized environments including in-depth connections with many of the cultural institutions located in Cleveland’s University Circle neighborhood. These include The Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Cleveland Botanical Garden, the Western Reserve Historical Society, the Cleveland Institute of Music, the Cleveland Museum of Art, The Cleveland Institute of Art, Case Western Reserve University, One to One Fitness Center, The Cleveland Clinic, and The Cleveland Play House.

Dear NAMTA Members and Followers,

Our operations are currently being moved to Seattle from Ohio. During this rather untimely transition, we appreciate your graciousness.

Our membership requests are currently backlogged, but will be processed once we return from Dallas. If you are purchasing a ticket for Dallas and desire the member rate, we still have the ability to verify existing and new memberships.

All ad requests will also be addressed post-conference.

Store order fulfillment will also be delayed as we set up our new store. We anticipate our store re-opening in December. If you have submitted an order in the past two weeks, that you need right away, please contact us for a refund. If you are able to wait until December, we would be happy to send your order at that time. We understand that this is a less than ideal situation and apologize for the inconvenience.

And if you are still interested in coming to Dallas, but have not yet purchased your ticket -- we are offering a special discount. 3 tickets for the price of 2! This is a $330 savings! To take advantage of this discount please go to:

If you have any questions in the meantime, please reach us at or 206-919-6349

Hope to see you all in Dallas!
