The Montessori School of Raleigh is a community dedicated to the education of children guided by the educational philosophy of Maria Montessori. MSR has provided opportunities for the Triangle's youngest citizens to "learn by doing" since 1974. The MSR Middle School, grades 7-9, has been graduating accomplished learners since 2001. At the Montessori School of Raleigh we believe that school and learning are a part of life, not just preparation for life; children are active learners, not passive absorbers of information; teachers are facilitators and guides, not mere sources of information; parents are partners and resources, not outsiders and uninvolved; community is an extension of school, not separate from school; learning is spiral with depth and breadth, not linear with factual accumulation alone; and knowledge is gained through experience, not through lecture, worksheets, or texts.
