Fiorelli Family

“We find the idea that our children are learning to be leaders and listeners as the navigate new challenges at MMS. to be epic. Success in relationships and careers is based on the ability to listen and lead with grace, compassion and strength. Our children are learning these skills each day as they navigate communication, respect, leadership, and problem-solving in the classroom. We know that the skills thy are learning at MMS shape every aspect of their lives — and that is epic education.”

Abbey Fiorelli, former Montessori student, with AJ Fiorelli and Dylan (Upper Elementary), Noelle (Lower Elementary) and Emmy (Primary).

Angel Lillard

“At Mountaineer Montessori, they don’t put it on a screen, They help you understand it. What’s epic to me is learning by doing and the field studies. We get to see that the real world says about something, not just what a book says.” Angel Lillard, MMS eighth year student

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Head Family

“Since beginning at MMS at age 3, our son has remained genuinely excited to attend school everyday day. We are grateful a strong foundation and early love of learning have been established. He is respected and valued at MMS, which has directly impacted his confidence and self-esteem. His growth is fostered in all areas — social, notionally, intellectually. We appreciate being part of a community, and have benefited from classes offered to parents.” Carolyn Head with Lucas Head and Eloise and Arthur (Primary)

Beth George

“An epic moment for me was hearing that my daughter stood up for someone. Through MMS, my children learned about community and what it meant to be a friend. MMS helped my children gain confidence to stand up for themselves, for others, and for what is right. I hope today’s students realize that MMS is a very special place. They can be themselves, study in-depth in areas that interest them, learn to be leaders, learn to listen, and learn to work cooperatively. I hope their passion, joy, and love of learning continue to grow.” Beth George, MMS Assistant Director and parent of three alumni
