Montessori is education in living color. Alive. Bright. Real.


For 40 years, Mountaineer Montessori School has brought learning to life, offering a hands-on, real world, world-class education that inspires children to discover and become who they were meant to be. At MMS, we are creating the next generation of innovators, problem-solvers and engaged citizens, equipped with a love of learning, self-confidence and responsible leadership to meet the challenges of a changing world.

MAKING THE FUTURE


At MMS, the arts are embedded throughout our curriculum, offering exceptional opportunities for students to explore and develop deep understanding of science, history, literature, math and other subjects, as well as develop cultural awareness, creative thinking and confidence.

 

“Making is not just a ‘nice’ activity. It connects, transforms and empowers. If we want a world full of  innovative, entrepreneurial thinkers, we need to enable and sustain ‘making’ from a very young age.” Paula Briggs, AcessArt
