Our Mission & Promise
The Montessori School of Raleigh is the Triangle’s modern embodiment and mindful practice of the time-proven Montessori philosophy, developing agile thinkers, poised communicators, and gracious collaborators—engineers of authentic and fulfilling lives.
The Montessori School of Raleigh is the Triangle’s modern embodiment and mindful practice of the time-proven Montessori philosophy for toddler through twelfth grade students.
Through self-directed engagement with MSR’s embracing culture, inherently interdisciplinary curriculum, and purposefully prepared environments, students construct their own meaning by fully inhabiting the study of their personal fascinations.
Implicitly and explicitly guided toward mastery of evolving social, emotional, and academic lessons by expert teachers, their fellow students, and their own metacognitive reflections, they learn the habits of mind and of practice that lead to deep focus, discernment, understanding, and maturity from their earliest years.
Through this vigorous and encompassing preparation, students develop the bedrock cognitive, executive, and interpersonal skillsets widely recognized as instrumental for success in college and in life—advancing from MSR as agile thinkers, poised communicators, and gracious collaborators, one and all.
But the true hallmark of an MSR education is the manifestation in our graduates of a transformative and future-shaping mindset: an earned and steadfast belief in their inner worth, ability, and consequence; a deep appreciation for community and for the singular gifts of others; and the confidence that comes from knowing themselves as docents of their own learning and engineers of authentic and fulfilling lives.
