MMUN NYC March 2023

Allowing students to explore deeply and find new meaning in their world through hands-on and real-world learning experiences such as the Montessori Model United Nations (MMUN) are hallmarks of the MSR experience and reflect Maria Montessori’s belief that by freeing a child’s potential you will “transform them into the world.” In March of 2023, eight Upper Elementary students from The Montessori School of Raleigh (MSR) participated in the 2023 MMUN Conference in New York City as part of an international delegation of students. The conference was the culmination of almost a year’s worth of concentrated preparation by the students who met after school once a week beginning in September 2022.
