The area around MIM has many excellent restaurants, coffee shops, brew pubs, clubs, new and used clothing stores and other retail establishments.

South of MIM, on E. St. Paul toward Lake Michigan, is Milwaukee's Historic Third Ward which also has many businesses and on-going development.

Have fun exploring Milwaukee!

image Housing Resources

MIM cannot provide housing for students. We do help you find roomates if you let us know via e-mail or mail that we can release your contact information to others. It is then up to you to make any arrangements.

You can use the Student Message Board to seek housing arrangements.

Summer, short term housing is available in the UW-Milwaukee Dormitories. The UWM Dormitories are approximately a 15 minute drive from MIM. Space is limited so if UW Guest Housing does not have a preferred location UW Guest Housing will contact you about other options. The earliest date is July 8th and the latest date is Sunday, July 30th. If you need accommodations outside of that window please email and include Montessori in the subject line.

Click here for information about rates and rooms available. You will be directed to login or create an account to view the information and/or register for housing.

During normal business hours in the USA (9am - 5pm central time) you can also contact the Guest Housing Coordinator Joshua J. Boehm (414) 229-0514

ANNOUNCING: Possible Three Summer Elementary Course in the Chicago Area Beginning in 2018!

We have heard from several people in the past that "it would be great if there were an AMI training option in Chicago."

Now there will be...but only with your help!

We are very excited about the possibility of expanding our AMI elementary community and supporting the expansion of AMI Montessori in Chicago Public Schools.

We have a team of trainers, we have a facility in Evanston, we have some material making underway.

Do we have people who are interested? That is the next step!

If you know someone who might be interested, or if your school is interested in sending staff to training, please let us know by filling out the following form or sending an email directly to the training center

Now accepting applications for AMI Elementary Teacher Training Programs starting in 2018.
