The dedicated directresses and director have decades of Montessori experience and have fully embraced the Montessori Method. The Montessori philosophy is reflected in the words and actions of the adults throughout the school. A culturally diverse, inclusive attitude creates a respectful, collaborative faculty that is essential to our mission and vision. Each environment has at least one directress/director who has Montessori training or is currently in training. This makes for a keen awareness of the specific needs and characteristics of the children in each classroom and understanding of the strategies and materials needed to respond with success to those needs and characteristics. Years of general experience, rigorous training, Montessori certification, experience at MCS or in a similar school, longevity in previous positions, and uncompromising devotion to the children are all characteristics of the MCS faculty and staff.
