MMS shares Montessori magic with Gayle Manchin, state leaders
MMS was honored to welcome former First Lady Gayle Manchin, the president of the WV Board of Education, and other state leaders to our school on November 6. Their tour came on the heels of the “Excellence in Education: It’s Everyone’s Business” Summit, which was presented by the Education Alliance at the Civic Center. During their visit, Mrs. Manchin and other state leaders, including Senator/Dr. Dan Foster, Charlie McElwee and Newt Thomas, learned how public schools are implementing Montessori to enhance academic performance and develop 21st century workforce skills, toured our classrooms and received an update on MMS future plans. MMS has been lighting the way for excellence and innovation in education since 1976, and welcomes the opportunity to contribute to improvements for all children in West Virginia.
