Notes for Prospective Students
Sensing the need for Montessori elementary education in the
McLean area during the early 1970's, Joan Marie Parasine, former
headmistress, started a class for elementary students based on the
curriculum developed by Dr.
Soon thereafter, the
close of a nearby Montessori preschool necessitated adding a
preschool class to the program.
In 1973, the Montessori School of
McLean opened with one preschool and one elementary class.
that time, six more preschool classes have been added and the
elementary class has been expanded to include the upper elementary
level in addition to the lower elementary classes (first through
sixth grade.) Cultural classes were added to the program throughout
the years and now include Art, Spanish or French, Music, Drama,
Science Lab, Technology Lab, Physical Education, and Writing
(The cultural program changes from time to time and some
programs are limited to the elementary level.) In 1998, a grand
celebration was held to commemorate our 25th year.
Now, after 35
wonderful years, the facilities have expanded to include a
multi-purpose room (gymnasium, stage, gathering space), science and
computer lab, and expanded classroom sizes.
