Our school is unique due to our amazingly supportive community. Each year, our students, parents, teachers, and staff form bonds that grow right along with our children.



Peaceful and collaborative classrooms are where our community begins. Children are naturally loving and accepting of differences. These tendencies are protected and nurtured with loving guidance. When conflict arises children learn developmentally appropriate ways to resolve conflict and promote peace.

We grow peacemakers. Each day in the classroom one need only look around to witness acts of kindness, consideration, and love. Our students model community as it should be for adults.


Family involvement is crucial to Montessori Farm School. Volunteer work, socials and regularly scheduled Parent Association gatherings create a community of people raising and actively participating in the education of each child. The school celebrates and fosters this involvement.

There are many opportunities for you to contribute to the work and growth of the school. We strongly encourage you to do so!
