Intercultural Montessori Language School is a unique school that embraces learning and celebrates cultures. We use the internationally recognized Montessori method to educate students from age 2 through the 8th grade level. Intercultural is a vibrant learning community and a relatively young school, established in 2005.
Intercultural prides itself on a strong worldview; our dual-language school provides families the option for their children to learn in English and one of three other languages: Japanese, Spanish or Chinese Mandarin.
This non-profit organization started in Oak Park, Illinois and expanded to Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood in 2009. Since then, the school has grown, adding a Middle School in 2017. In 2020, the school started a program for two-year-old children that is licensed by DCFS.
I am proud to see the additional programs and growth of the school in recent years. More importantly, I am pleased with the recent accomplishment of Intercultural becoming an accredited school by the American Montessori Society in 2020.
We encourage you to learn more about our school so that you can appreciate our diverse student population, our talented multicultural staff, robust academics and our passion for providing a unique and exceptional educational experience. Intercultural is supported by a strong and dedicated community; our work is not possible without the commitment of our teachers and staff, our students, the parent community, and our Board of Directors.
We welcome you to this one-of-a-kind school where we are developing Global Citizens of the world…
