As part of our campaign, MMS students, families, teachers and alumni are sharing their Montessori stories to highlight what the epic MMS education experience means to them:
The Fiorelli Family
"We find the idea that our children are learning to be leaders and listeners as the navigate new challenges at MMS to be epic. Success in relationships and careers is based on the ability to listen and lead with grace, compassion and strength. Our children are learning these skills each day."
Abbey Fiorelli, former Montessori student, with AJ Fiorelli and Dylan, Noelle and Emmy
Meet the Fiorelli family
"At Mountaineer Montessori, they don't put it on a screen, They help you understand it. What's epic to me is learning by doing and the field studies. We get to see that the real world says about something, not just what a book says." Angel Lillard, MMS eighth year student
The Head Family
"Since beginning at MMS at age 3, our son has remained genuinely excited to attend school everyday day. We are grateful a strong foundation and early love of learning have been established. He is respected and valued, which has directly impacted his confidence and self-esteem. His growth is fostered in all areas -- social, notionally, intellectually." Carolyn Head with Lucas Head and Eloise and Arthur (Primary)
Meet the Head Family
"At MMS my children learned about community and what it meant to be a friend. They gained confidence to stand up for themselves and for what is right. I hope today's students realize that MMS is a very special place. They can be themselves, study in-depth in areas that interest them, learn to be leaders, learn to listen, and learn to work cooperatively. I hope their passion, joy, and love of learning continue to grow." Beth George, MMS Assistant Director and parent of three alumni
