Students are also introduced to other cultures through social studies, art and music lessons. All children are given instruction in a foreign language. Teachers at the Montessori School of New York International have graduated from some of the most prestigious schools in the world, including Cambridge, Harvard and Columbia. They hold post-graduate Montessori diplomas, and are committed to the Montessori method of teaching.
The administrators of the school believe that the Montessori School of New York International has been successful due to the expanded age group of the students and the locations of the beautiful schools. The reputation of the school's graduates has also played a part. Many alumni of the Montessori School of New York International have gone on to attend Ivy League colleges and enter successful professional careers in New York City.
