General School Mission

"The Montessori School of Quincy offers children from the age of two years nine months through age nine an education based upon the method developed by Doctor Maria Montessori. Our mission is to guide children in their self-formation. Self-Formation is unique for each child and involves an integrated approach. It is best achieved in an environment that fosters self-discipline and freedom with responsibility.
