About Seward Montessori
Seward Montessori School is a Montessori magnet school located in a quiet neighborhood in the southeastern area of Minneapolis. We are a pre-K through 5th grade learning center that embraces students of diverse backgrounds. We foster inquiry, curiosity, and respect in an environment rich with dedication, warmth, and kindness. An array of Montessori and staff-designed materials allow students to work from concrete experiences toward an understanding of abstract concepts. Activities are ordered and sequenced to encourage independence and inquiry.
