Mission Statement:
The Monocacy Valley Montessori School is a small, intimate and democratic learning community where children learn actively, think critically, and solve problems creatively.

Students’ innate desire to learn is fostered using the Montessori approach: a prepared environment, hands-on materials, mixed age classes, and self-directed learning.

We empower students to become responsible, confident, caring citizens who possess strong academic skills and an enduring love of learning.
