Spreading our wings: Montes-SOARING into a new year at MMS
At Mountaineer Montessori School, we’re spreading our wings!
Our time-tested, child-centered approach to education fosters learning without limits, offering students the time, space and encouragement to go as far and as high as they can. Since our school’s founding in 1976, we’ve given wings to an estimated 1,000 children, freeing them to discover their passions, fulfill their unique potential and contribute to creating a better world.
“Spreading Our Wings,” the 2017-18 Annual Report, highlights how our school community “Montes-soared” over the past year, and helped us reach several major milestones, including:
- Expansion of our early childhood program into a third Primary classroom. Total school enrollment has nearly doubled in the past seven years, reflecting a strong and growing interest in our world class education options at all levels.
- Realignment and enhancement of our math curriculum, primary through middle school, through the AMS Pathways to Continuous School Improvement program. MMS is the only full member school of the American Montessori Society and the only AMS Pathways school in West Virginia.
- Major upgrades and enhancements of our main building on 20th Street, including new windows, new air conditioning systems, refinished flooring, new furniture and outdoor environment improvements.
We invite you to learn more in our annual report and join with as we enter a fifth decade of education that elevates. Working together, the sky’s the limit!
