Our School

Engaging classroom activities

The unique Montessori curriculum allows children to learn at their own pace as they successfully navigate challenges that help develop proficiencies fitting to their needs and developmental level. Students are encouraged to explore their interests while learning to organize, plan, and complete daily activities.

What makes MCR stand out from the rest?

“The greatest gift we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of freedom.” – Dr. Montessori.

Our beautifully designed classrooms offer children this freedom of movement in an atmosphere of peace and beauty, allowing our students to grow roots and spread their wings within a scientifically validated and time-honored educational model. This is the MCR journey, and it begins the moment children first enter the front door and continues until the confident sixth grader exits as an MCR graduate.

Individualized to a child’s needs

Meeting the individual needs of each child is one of the cornerstones of the Montessori philosophy. Every facet of the classroom has a purpose to empower each child’s natural curiosity. They pursue their own interests at their own pace, maximizing academic potential while igniting their imagination.

In a Montessori classroom, each lesson builds on the previous one, giving the child the security of success.  Since children are actively engaged in their education, it naturally encourages them to follow their interests and take on new challenges.  If the child needs or wants help, there is an adult or other classmate close by willing to assist. Sharing knowledge and helping others becomes a great tool in making friends in the world as well as the classroom.


Multi-age atmosphere

Dr. Montessori believed a mixed-age classroom creates an atmosphere where children learn to help and be helped by others. Children often learn best from one another, and they seek to do so naturally. The younger child is often mesmerized by an older student doing challenging work, and this inspires them. They look to the older children for guidance, and the older students are happy to provide it. When an older child teaches a younger one, it reinforces a previously learned concept and aids in complete mastery of the concept for the older child. Grouping students in this manor allows for a child-centered environment; the result is a cooperative, family-like atmosphere building socialization skills naturally.
