General School Mission

"Montessori Community School is a community devoted to nurturing children to grow as responsible citizens of society. At MCS we use the Montessori concept of grace and courtesy to model for the children behaviors that contribute to living in harmony with others. The practice of grace and courtesy is introduced to young children in simple ways such as greetings, respect for others and offers of help to those in need. As children grow they apply simple notions of kindness and friendship practiced with those around them to a desire for other people around the world to live in dignity and peace. By adolescence children who grow up with grace and courtesy acquire a passion for justice. We look to the children to guide us and we are confident that they are ready to lead."
