Welcome to our site.
I am pleased that you have taken the time to visit the
Yonkers Montessori Academy website.  I hope that you
find our website to be user-friendly and informative.
Yonkers Montessori Academy is a wonderful place for
students from diverse backgrounds to grow educationally,
get involved, and have a meaningful pre-kindergarten
through high school experience.  The Yonkers Montessori
 Academy instructional program is rooted in the Montessori
 philosophy.  The curriculum, course offerings, and extra-
curricular activities are aligned with New York State
standards and we are in the process of reviewing the New
Common Core Standards.  We strive to create an
environment where each and every student is given the
attention necessary to achieve his/her individual success. I
 hope that this website helps you gather more information
about our school.  As always, I have an open door policy
and I am available should you have any questions or
feedback on making it better. 
Thank you.
