The MCS Difference

The Montessori Community School enrolls students aged 3 months through 6th grade offering a uniquely authentic Montessori curriculum. The Montessori method of teaching aims for the fullest possible development of the whole child, ultimately preparing each student  for life’s many rich experiences. Montessori education is a flow experience; it builds on the continuous self construction of the child- daily, weekly, yearly.

Why Choose Montessori

  • Beginning at an early age, Montessori nurtures order, concentration, and independence.

  • The Montessori Method encourages empathy, a passion for social justice, and a joy in lifelong learning.
  • Given the freedom and support to question, to probe deeply, and to make connections, Montessori students become confident, enthusiastic, self-directed learners.
  • Students are supported in becoming active seekers of knowledge.
  • Montessori supports social-emotional skills.
  • Students are able to think critically, work collaboratively, and act boldly—a skill set for the 21st century.

Testimonials

When our family moved to Utah in 2014, we were looking for the right school to send our children to. We really loved the mission of MCS. The individual attention given to each child’s learning and development was important to us. Montessori Community School felt like home for our children and there was a nice connection with our values. We believe that this was a good fit for our daughters. One of our children had gone to a Montessori school when she was younger and our family was looking to continue fostering the education that she had received.
