Tessa InterTessa-School-Monroe-Centernational School is located in the heart of Hoboken, NJ. The preschool is currently under construction and will be located on the ground floor of the Monroe Center: a newly renovated, historic industrial site, including two buildings and a parking lot. The Monroe Center already hosts numerous child-friendly activities, making it one of the most convenient leisure centers for families in Hoboken and the neighboring towns.

The school will feature six classrooms facing the northern side of the building in a loft style space filled with natural light. It will have direct access to its own playground.


Office Hours: Our office is currently located on the 3rd floor, just two floors above the school, in suite E315. Our summer office hours are: Monday-Friday 9:00am-5:00pm.
