May River Montessori provides an outstanding education to 190 full-time students, from ages 2 to 12n(6th grade).
Though much of our success is due to the dedication of our caring teachers and staff, the longstanding tradition of family and community involvement has also been integral to cultivating a strong educational foundation.
We are proud to celebrate 30+ years of fostering the future of our children in South Carolina's Lowcountry.
