At Free State Montessori School we are committed to the educational process, and the discovery of self within the context of community.
We seek to teach a more peaceable way by creating a whole school community.
In partnership with parents, we seek to assist children in the process of becoming the next generation of leaders who are well-educated, self-actualized individuals committed and capable of contributing to the betterment of the world.
As co-learners in this process, we honor the inestimable worth and universal right of every child to discover their own personal excellence in every facet of their lives, among loving and mutually respectful relationships.
We recognize the natural tendencies of children and believe that every child is gifted with an innate love of learning, which can be nurtured and sustained for a lifetime through positive, challenging expectations, self-reflection, and purposeful engagement in the world.
Our mission is to create the conditions, which allow for such a process to unfold.
Our vision is a world in harmony where all people are able to realize their full potential.
We believe that this can ultimately be achieved through the dedicated education of children and their families within the context of true community.

School Reviews

I can not say enough positive things about Free State Montessori School! Our children have been attending FSMS since they were two years old- 6 years later they are thriving, happy and well rounded. The faculty and staff are extremely dedicated and experienced and the community is wonderful.
