General School Mission

"The Gloucester Montessori School adheres to the principles developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, (1870-1952). It is a cooperative effort between the staff and families to provide a safe, caring educational environment grounded in the Montessori philosophy. GMS focuses on the whole child and strives to maintain a balance between intellectual, ethical, social-emotional, and physical development of each child. We base our philosophy on respect for the worth of each child, and we encourage children to respect themselves, one another, and their world. GMS strives to be an integral part of the community. We welcome children and families of diverse cultural, religious, racial, and socio-economic backgrounds."
