About Us

Forest Bluff School, located near downtown Lake Bluff and Lake Forest, Illinois, is an independent, not-for-profit AMI accredited Montessori school, serving approximately 150 students between the ages of 18 months and 14 years.


Our Montessori mission at Forest Bluff School is to guide children in their self-formation from birth through 14 years of age. Self-formation follows universal principles in addition to being unique for each child. It involves an integrating process that is guided by the developing intellect and human spirit. It is best achieved in an educational environment that fosters self-discipline and the opportunity to exercise freedom appropriate to the child’s developing sense of responsibility. These skills of strong character are readily observed in the child’s growing respect for others, the environment, and the self.


Academically, a Forest Bluff School education focuses on the child’s skills for discovery and exploration of a world that is both physical and spiritual in nature. We believe that this search for understanding, as opposed to the presentation, memorization and subsequent testing of information, is the essence of a meaningful education. It is a life-long process for each of us.


We encourage our teachers and parents to continue their own personal growth as a means to assist children in their self-development and in their attainment of those virtues important to a civilized and productive society: character, integrity, service and a passion for life.
