Students, alumni, win state chess championship, regional spelling bee & math counts competition–on the same day!

March 21, 2015, was a day for the record books at Mountaineer Montessori School. Our students and alumni racked up three very impressive victories that reflect their commitment to education and pursuit of excellence. We take great pride on congratulating:
