Welcome to Montessori Center School.

For over fifty years, MCS has been committed to academic excellence, providing students with a quality education, encouraging the development of the whole child and instilling a lifelong love of learning.

Our highly trained teachers have decades of experience and an unmatched passion for the Montessori philosophy. The MCS program emphasizes independence, freedom within limits, and respect for the child. It builds the academic, intellectual, physical, social, and emotional well-being of the child while challenging each child to achieve his or her potential.

Our well-structured classroom environments are inspiring and engaging, allowing exploration of a broad scope of curricular areas. Our school is closed temporarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but our virtual doors are always open. Click on the “Tour & Explore” button at the top of this page to learn how an MCS education fosters independent, curious and resourceful thinkers and learners.
