Montessori Community School

Welcome to Montessori Community School in Durham, NC, where faculty, parents, staff, and children come together to nurture the minds and hearts of our children. We educate students, age 18 months to 14 years old, according to Dr. Maria Montessori’s highest values of community, love of life-long learning, perseverance, and education in practical life skills.

Montessori Community School is a place to grow; a place where indoor classrooms and outdoor environments provide children with direct access to the natural world; a place where dedicated, highly-trained faculty prepare beautiful, orderly classrooms and skillfully guide each child’s progress through the curriculum; a place where MCS parents are active partners in their children’s education, confident that Montessori methods inspire academic excellence and healthy interactions.

Located on the border of Chapel Hill and Durham, the Montessori Community School is accredited by the American Montessori Society (AMS), Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), and the National Council for Private School Accreditation. We welcome qualified applicants into our toddler, pre-K (primary), elementary and middle school programs.
