The Yellowknife Montessori School continues its innovative and adaptable approach to education while adhering to core Montessori philosophies and beliefs.

We are pleased to be offering the Yellowknife Public Montessori Program in partnership with Yellowknife Education District #1 (YK1). This program is located at NJ Macpherson School.

Benefits of the Yellowknife Public Montessori Program

The public Montessori program operates grades JK-5 at NJ Macpherson School through a multi-grade approach. Students enter the system through Montessori Junior Kindergarten and progress to Lower Elementary for ages 6-9 and Upper Elementary Classes for ages 9-12. Students who have gone through the public Montessori system typically continue in the Intensive French Program at William McDonald Middle School.
