School Reviews

MSCC has provided an excellent environment for our daughters to learn to be independent, organized and confident. We absolutely love the staff. They are dedicated, patient and amazing at giving the students the opportunity to flourish. I was not familiar with the montessori philosophy and now wish I had learned French, math, geography, and science in the same manner. My children even enjoy cleaning at home! I highly recommend this school to any parent looking to raise "good citizens" between 1.5 - 6 years old.
