North Avondale became one of the first public Montessori schools in Cincinnati in 1981. Since it's conception, NAM has grown into one of the premier Montessori schools in the world. A well rounded program helps to support our focus on academics and our school motto, "NAM Rockets, Soaring Toward Excellence." Most of our students continue their educaiton at Walnut Hills High School, Clark Montessori, or the School for Creative and Performing Arts.
We believe our Montessori Philosophy and Methods, a clear Arts Enrichment focus, and more than 30 years of rich tradition prepare our students to become active participants in the world community.
Our gifted and talented students engage in the STEM program (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) sponsored by Drake Planetarium. Students are selected based on Terra Nova scores. For academic enrichment, we offer tutoring by parent and community volunteers during the school day as well as after hours, an Extended Learning Program for grades 3-6 afte rschool, Study Island, which is a test prepartation tutorial program, assessible to students at school, home, or wherever they have an internet connection! Some students benefit from small group Study Island practice sessions after school. We are doing all we can to prepare our students to be their very best.
“It is true that we cannot make a genius. We can only give to each child the chance to fulfil his potential possibilities.”
