The Ancona School has selected Ian Symmonds & Associates for strategic planning and strategy development. We will commence our work in the summer 2020. We are delighted to welcome Ancona to our client community.

History: A powerful sense of possibility inspired five young Hyde Park families in the summer of 1962 to place a want ad in the Hyde Park Herald asking, “Montessori, Anybody?” By autumn, the then called Ancona Montessori School opened in a storefront on 53rd street and Lake Park Blvd., and a school that offered a philosophical difference astonishing for its time was born.

Mission: Ancona educates students to become creative problem solvers, confident risk takers and independent, lifelong learners. Rooted in the Montessori tradition, our child-centered school stimulates the joy of learning and builds a strong academic foundation. We inspire children to nourish their inner lives, find the power in their own voices and strive for justice and peace. In a community of cultural and economic diversity, Ancona cultivates understanding, care and respect for others.
