MONTROSE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL OF INNOVATION (MESI) engages students with new and innovative ways of learning to best prepare them for a rapidly changing world. Challenge- and inquiry-based experiences infuse technology, creativity, collaboration and critical thinking into the everyday STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) learning environment. Each day, teachers engage students in hands-on activities that encourage them to problem solve, work collaboratively and understand the relevance of what they are learning. Montrose serves approximately 360 students in grades K-5. MESI is a neighborhood school and a school of choice, as part of the Northwest Suburban Integration School District (NWSISD).


Our mission at Montrose Elementary School of Innovation is to engage students in authentic, relevant, and purposeful learning opportunities to best prepare them for college and career paths in a rapidly changing world. Collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking are infused into the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) Magnet experience to promote and support a sense of belonging, self-discovery, reflection, risk-taking, and academic growth.
