Ancona School Ratings & Reviews

Ancona is not just a school, it has become our village. Writing a review will never do this institution, this community enough justice. The kiddo (who is now 7) started there at the pre-K level when we left Old Town to move somewhere where I would not keep being mistaken for “the help” or nanny of my bi-racial child. A friend recommended we check out Ancona. Even on the admissions visit day, a mother (who is now a dear friend of mine) yelled from across the street “Are you considering enrolling here? You will absolutely love it!” And she was 100% right. This is the type of school that is not just right for our child, but for the whole family. From the amazing head of school Nancy, to all the administrators, and our beloved teachers: this community educates and nurtures the whole person and you can see that in how Ancona students interact with one another, engage with our local community, and how emotionally and socially intelligent and connected they are to issues of social justice and global citizenship. And for those who are leery or under-educated about Montessori education and/or are focused more on data or metrics, Ancona students are just as prepared and competitive as students from other institutions in terms of high school placement. Our kids go on to Walter Payton, Latin, etc. and go on to become awesome humans and impressive alumns. So, don’t let “boogey man” narratives about Montessori education scare you. I, for one, cannot say enough great things about our “home.” All I can say is, you need to check Ancona out!

Since starting at Ancona, my child's inquisitiveness, independence, creativity, and kindness have blossomed. She writes thoughtful notes, sounding out letters and putting her ideas down on paper. She explains how there are three threes in a nine and four threes in a 12. She notices and points out cumulus clouds in the sky and caterpillars on the ground. Most importantly, she talks about shining her light on other people and helping her community.

Excellent. Both of my kids attended, starting at the Montessori pre-primary level and going through 8th grade (then to Walter Payton for high school). My wife and I continue to be involved at the school, more than 10 years after our youngest graduated.

We have been so happy with Ancona for our children. They are unbelievably supported at this school: academically and emotionally. Their curiosity is nurtured and valued, and they are truly confident learners: happy to not know, to ask questions, and to seek out ways to know more. I know that Ancona is giving them the tools and the confidence they will need once they leave its walls.

We have only been Ancona parents for a short time (1 month!) and already, the impact is clear. Our child clearly feels at home, secure, safe, AND deeply challenged academically in this new environment. He is tired in a whole new way every night and is enthusiastic about everything he is experiencing. He has also never expressed so much concern about cleaning up after himself, taking responsibility, and how the things he says and does impact others. We visited many schools in the city before choosing Ancona, and the choice was so clear. Ancona lives and breathes its values, and diversity is not just a talking point to tout but at the core of everything they do. We couldn't be happier at what we are providing for our child at Ancona.
