Envisioning our Future

Strategic Plan 2019 – 2024


Since 1965, Montessori Center School has provided families with a high quality and challenging education. With a unified commitment to guiding the development of the whole child, our aim is to ensure the school is meeting the standards that our community expects from us and that we expect from ourselves. 

During the 2018-2019 school year, MCS launched a comprehensive strategic planning process, its first in many years. The collaborative process involved all of our stakeholders (parents, teachers, staff, board alumni and students) resulting in a renewed institutional identity (vision, mission, core values) and five year strategic plan guiding our growth and continuous improvement. Comprised of three broad key strategic initiatives accompanied by specific goals and objectives, the strategic plan is the guide against which we measure our annual accomplishments. 

Additionally, we’ve updated our visual brand identity system (logo, emblem, colors, fonts and motto) to align with our strategic planning goals and institutional identity. Our distinctive branding seeks to present MCS as a forward-thinking institution while still recognizing and honoring our 50+ years of history.

Our vision, mission, core values and strategic plan are meant to serve as a guide for all to understand what is driving us daily here at MCS; now and in the future. We are pleased to share MCS’s strategic plan and refreshed brand identity with the community. We look forward to updating our community on our progress in the months ahead. 

Warm Regards.
