MCS Equity Statement

  • At Montessori Community School, we strive to create a sustainable community that fosters culturally responsive collaboration and inclusivity. We recognize and value the unique needs, strengths, and experiences of our school community, while removing barriers to educational access. We will continuously reevaluate our efforts towards equity with all invested stakeholders within the community.  


  • Welcome to Montessori Community School!  MCS is a small magnet program located in the Springfield subdivision of West Ashley. We serve students ages 3 - 13 years old in our Primary, Lower Elementary, Upper Elementary, and Middle School classrooms.  Our teachers are both Montessori and state certified. We are dedicated to providing quality Montessori education and child development with the cooperative involvement of family, faculty and the community. Our program has met with a great deal of success, both in parent and student satisfaction and in our state assessments, SC READY and SCPASS. 

    Montessori is a unique approach to learning that provides an environment and materials purposefully designed to stimulate the child's interest and natural desire to learn. Multi-age classes, emphasis on materials rather than textbooks and collaborative rather than competitive work are all features that differentiate MCS from many other schools.
