- Our program focuses on a broad array of topics including math, language, geography, science, social and cultural studies, music, art, practical life skills, and social skills.
- Our school is conveniently located on Northshore Drive near I-140. We are nestled within a quiet community and neighbored by a local church. We have ample outdoor space with privacy fencing and gardens for the children, and our school building was designed and built by a trained Montessori teacher for optimal use as a Montessori classroom.
- MIS is dedicated to providing a quality Montessori program for all children and families and does not discriminate based on race, gender, disability, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, religious belief, or political affiliation. We have a wonderfully diverse student body and parent community which we celebrate, respect, and enjoy.
