Montcrest School is a welcoming community that specializes in cultivating incredible young people. We believe in small class sizes and unparalleled student-teacher relationships. We believe individuality is something to protect, not suppress. And we believe in meeting our students with the ideal supports—and perfect challenges—for each age and stage, so they emerge as secure, self-directed young people who excel in academics and in life. Simply put, Montcrest helps children become who they’re meant to be.

“Montcrest continues to exceed my expectations of what a school could be. My kids are given every opportunity to explore who they are and what excites them.” 

“I am very pleased with the overall philosophy that guides the teaching (and discipline) at the school. It is thoughtful and inclusive. I feel that my children are getting a superior education and receive the emotional support and encouragement that is helping them to grow into good citizens of the school and the world.”

“Our son moved to Montcrest in grade 7 and had a transformational year in which he grew in every way. The amazing teachers got to know his true nature and helped nurture a sense of belonging, independence, and academic success. We can’t say enough about all that Montcrest has been for our son and our family.”

“The staff at Montcrest are exceptional. They have gone above and beyond to truly know and understand our children, and we have absolute faith that our kids are being nurtured and inspired by the very best teachers in the city.”

“My child has blossomed at Montcrest. He is able to take risks in a safe and supportive environment. He is being challenged academically, without knowing he is being pushed in that direction.”

“I am grateful that I found the right fit for my child. I was also very pleasantly surprised that I fit in too... what a warm and absolutely lovely, supportive, and accepting school community. My son is happy at school and that is so important for parent and child.”

“The trusting, supportive relationships that our elder child has had with a couple of teachers have made all the difference for her. She is in a place that has recognized her strengths and encouraged her in her interests and maturation.”
