MCS is a well-established, independent Montessori school serving approximately 270 children ages 18 months through 8th grade. Our beautifully planned, 14 acre, wooded campus is located between Durham and Chapel Hill, NC. It boasts bright and airy classrooms, a fine arts center, outdoor learning spaces, a soccer field and four playgrounds, including a Robin Moore-designed Primary playground.

MCS is dedicated to providing a quality, authentic Montessori experience for children, and have very strong support from a parent community that believes in the Montessori philosophy. Both our parents and our Board support the teachers and administration. We are accredited by the American Montessori Society (AMS) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).

We are ideally located between Durham and Chapel Hill, just a short drive from Raleigh, the state capital. Many of our staff members live in genuinely rural settings within easy commuting distance. Others live within walking distance of the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill. This university town has an immense variety of activities, movie theaters, dramatic and musical productions, and restaurants with every kind of menu. It is a great place to live and work.
