General School Mission

"MCS is a learning community of children, parents, faculty, and staff, each with distinct roles and responsibilities. Adults work in concert to support children's development as active, peaceful, life-long learners and global citizens.

Welcome to Montessori Community School where faculty, parents and staff strive to provide an education that espouses
Dr. Montessori's highest values of community, love of learning, perseverance, and education as an aid to life.

Montessori Community School is

...a place to grow;

...a place where indoor classrooms and outdoor campus areas provide children with direct access and anchors to the natural world;

...a place where dedicated faculty prepare beautiful, orderly classrooms and skillfully guide each child's progress through the curriculum;

...a place where MCS parents are active partners in their children's education, striving to understand the Montessori method and embrace its principles
