Parents are welcome and encouraged to be an active part in their child’s education. In addition to bi-weekly newsletters, an active Facebook page, and a regularly updated website, we invite parents to observe in the classroom, join us on exploratory field trips, help us organize school events or fundraisers, and connect with each other informally, creating a network that links the classroom to the community, and in turn, to the world.
At The Montessori School we are invested in creating respectful relationships among teachers, administrative staff, parents, and children. We appreciate and celebrate diversity and recognize how we as a school benefit from the array of cultural backgrounds and traditions that families and staff members bring to our community. We work to provide an inclusive environment and do not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, religion, creed, national origin, ancestry, ethnicity, disability, or sexual orientation.
The Montessori School offers a variety events to connect members of the community to our school. We invite you to join us at our next event!
This special social event for school community also serves as a school fundraisers. The event is planned by parent volunteers and is a great way to have fun with other families at the School.

The Main Event
Each year parents, alumni families, faculty and staff, and friends of The Montessori School join in a night of food, drinks and fun! This is a fun night to bring a group of friends, grandparents, and neighbors – it is not limited to Montessori families! The Main Event helps us purchase new materials and outdoor equipment, provide professional development opportunities for our staff, and support our tuition assistance program.
Trash clean-up, hanging bird feeders, nature hikes and gardening are just some of the ways we celebrate our home, Earth, on Earth Day and every day! Parents are encouraged to join us as we undertake landscaping projects and other conservation initiatives.
Our Spring Concert is a celebration of music that allows the children to showcase vocal, dance and instrumental pieces from a variety of cultures. The children at both campuses work hard all year on their songs and dances, and it is always exciting to see what they have accomplished!
