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.

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.

The teachers have loved my children and have shown constant caring about their education, well being, and overall environment. I had no idea how much I would value this type of education, but I can tell you now that having all four of my kids at MCS was one of my greatest decisions I’ve made as a father.
