Established in 1974, the Montessori School of Raleigh (MSR) is a vibrant and exceptional, independent Montessori school serving over 400 students aged six week through 18 years.

MSR faculty and staff enjoy the school's supportive and collegial community, shared values, and a clear educational and institutional mission.  MSR is committed to attracting and retaining the highest quality faculty and staff through a substantial compensation plan, including competitive salary and full medical/dental coverage. 

Teachers, also known as guides, engage, inspire, and challenge students to learn and grow. Grounded in the Montessori method, students in early childhood and elementary levels learn in multi-age classes to build foundational skills and foster warm, lasting relationships. Montessori values extend to the academic program  in the Middle and Upper Schools where faculty guide students to develop as independent, lifelong learners and prepare them for the rigorous International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme offered in MSR's grades 11 and 12.

Our campuses
MSR’s beautifully designed and well maintained Lead Mine Campus, situated on 10 acres in North Raleigh, comprises five buildings in a child-centered, village-like setting surrounded by wetlands and protected forest. Our Middle and Upper Schools are housed on an expansive 40-acre wooded campus in Brier Creek. Both sites were carefully planned and constructed to provide the nature-centered environments integral to Montessori practice.

MSR welcomes employment inquiries at any time of year.  In general, most interviewing and hiring for faculty positions occur in the winter/spring; however, resumes are accepted throughout the year. If you are interested in joining our team, we encourage you to send your resume to
