Welcome to Montessori Center School's website where you will learn how for 47 years MCS has prepared students ages 18 months through 6th grade for academic excellence, confident life-long learning, and social responsibility in a supportive environment where children are allowed to explore and celebrate their individuality.
Our educational philosophy and practice are based on the Montessori Method. We invite you to visit our school in person and see a dynamic example of why Montessori education serves the needs of 21st century learners. Recently many articles have been published about famous Montessori graduates such as, for example, the founders of Google who openly credit their innovative achievements to a Montessori education. Montessori Center School students develop critical thinking, social collaboration, and creative problem solving skills, coupled with global and environmental awareness that will serve them well as they become the next generation of innovators and global citizens.
Adding to the richness of the Montessori curriculum, Montessori Center School is located in a spacious garden campus that houses a low student to teacher ratio, credentialed teachers, fully equipped classrooms, a library, music and art studios, performing arts and auditorium space, after-school care center, outdoor classroom environments and play areas. With an enrollment of approximately 270 students, our school offers a rich social environment, a community of committed teachers, and supportive parents and administrators. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions and to schedule a campus tour. We look forward to saying hello!
