  • Welcome to Nokomis Montessori South Campus. Our school is based on the Montessori method: Students learn at their own pace in multi-grade classrooms, independently cultivating their interests and natural abilities. Teachers help students choose their work in carefully prepared, peaceful environments; students use beautifully designed hands-on materials to practice and understand skills and concepts. Teachers are Montessori certified and use the Montessori philosophy to guide instruction.

    My name is Abigail Felber-Smith. I am very excited to join the Nokomis Montessori South Elementary School community. My initial learning about Montessori Education has come through my own daughters’ experiences in preschool. I am eager to deepen my own knowledge of Montessori Education from the knowledgeable and caring staff, students, and families at Nokomis Montessori South.

    Please feel free to drop by my office and introduce yourself and your child(ren). You can also reach me via email (abigail.felber-smith@spps.org) or phone (651-744-5500).

    Also, make sure to stay informed about the Nokomis Montessori South community by following us on Twitter @NokomisSouthSPPS.
