Missoula Community School

  • The Missoula Community School offers school year and summer programs for children ages 3 - 7.
  • MCS is a creative, nurturing learning place for children and a welcoming, collaborative place for parents and families.
  • Interpersonal skills and communication are the heart of MCS. Children form close relationships with teachers and with peers, building a nurturing environment for children to take risks, challenge themselves and build self-confidence.
  • The Missoula Community School is in its third year as a progressive alternative for the education of young children.
  • As we have refined our mission and developed our curriculum, we have ‘discovered' like-minded schools around the country.
  • No two progressive schools anywhere are exactly alike, but all progressive schools share a belief in the importance of educating children to become active, engaged members of their communities, to become lifelong learners who take ownership of their education, and to fulfill their potential.
  • Among the similarities likely to be observed among progressive schools an integrated (rather than segmented) approach to academic subjects an individualized and observational (rather than standardized) approach to assessment.
