Dan & Kelsey Barrell

When we were looking for a school to send our child to close friends of ours recommended Montessori Community School. They described the positive experiences they had as a family and it planted the seed. We then looked into the Montessori method, and what appealed to us was not the content being taught but how it was being taught. We felt that the teachers would meet the needs of our child and allow them to be self-driven and inspired. The idea of smaller classrooms, and supporting our child in building functional life skills, not just academics. We feel like the place we were at before simply “watched” our child; MCS fostered his intellectual curiosity. Very interested in the Dual Language program as well.
