 Montessori Community School

We are a place to grow; a place where indoor classrooms and outdoor environments provide children with direct access to the natural world; a place where dedicated, highly-trained faculty prepare beautiful, orderly classrooms and skillfully guide each child’s progress through the curriculum; a place that confidently follows the Montessori philosophy to inspire academic excellence, a love of learning, and healthy social interactions.

Located on the border of Chapel Hill and Durham, MCS is accredited by the American Montessori Society (AMS), Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), and the National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA).

VIRTUAL TOUR

A one-on-one tour of our campus is the best way to get to know our school, but this video will give you a virtual tour before you are able to visit us in person!
