Welcome to The Montessori School of Raleigh

Thank you for your interest in MSR, where students at every level, infant through high school, experience the joy of learning through a hands-on, project-based approach designed to engage students in the discovery of themselves and the world around them.

For Maria Montessori, an education is acquired not by listening to words but by experiencing the learning environment. At MSR, calm, open, and appealing spaces invite children to engage with ideas, people, and things. Our carefully prepared classrooms foster the joy of self-discovery and stimulate curiosity and imagination. The confidence and sense of agency developed in lower grades prepare students to undertake the rigorous college-preparatory high school curriculum that cultivates attributes in young people espoused by Maria Montessori: global perspective, emphasis on self-reflection and self-directed learning, and integration of international and social focus on peace and justice.

We invite you to come see for yourself how MSR inspires students to be curious, independent, lifelong learners prepared for fulfilling and authentic lives.

Life at MSR

Education, growth, and discovery begin at MSR as early as 6 week of age, and continues through their elementary, middle and high school years. At each level of their educational journey, your child will be challenged and supported as they build on foundations of academic rigor and real-life learning.

Infant (6 weeks to 15 months)

I just want to express my gratitude for all you have done for my kids during this transition. While we miss actually being at school, I cannot tell you how impressed I am with MSR and our teachers. They have gone above and beyond to make sure we are prepared to have a routine, schedule, and continue our learning. They have also provided a lot of comfort and love to our kids as they continue to set up FaceTime, Zoom meetings, etc. making sure my kids see their faces, voices, and their friends.

Thank you all for what you are doing. We are so grateful to have chosen MSR for our children.
