School Notes

  • The McGuffey Montessori School is located in Oxford, Ohio. When the Miami University Lab School closed in 1983, a handful of staff and parents founded McGuffey Foundation School. Now the McGuffey Montessori School, it is a privately run school, educating students in preschool through high school.
  • Innovative Academic Programs, a low student-to-teacher ratio, hands-on exploration and discovery, extensive field trips, and creative contributions from the larger community make the McGuffey learning experience unique, compelling, effective-and fun.At McGuffey Montessori School, you`ll see solid basic education with a twist: kindergartners doing complex science experiments and seventh and eighth graders planning the details of their trip to Washington, DC; interactive science experiments and real-life industrial arts, individual instruction complemented by mixed-grade study partners; and workshops with visiting and resident artists.
  • In class after class, you`ll find secure academic structure with supported spontaneity. You`ll hear the exuberance of discovery. You`ll see the flash of insight. You`ll feel the goose-bumpy thrill of real learning in progress.
  • And you`ll wish, if you had to do it over, that you could go to McGuffey Montessori School, too.Learn more about ourvaluesand beliefs, orcontact us to plan a visit.
