At the Greensboro Montessori School, learning is a journey. Our mission is to nurture children to be creative, eager learners as they discover their full potential and become responsible, global citizens. Our teachers and curriculum inspire a joy of learning, academic success, intellectual excitement, creativity, and emotional well-being in each of our students.
Our school is accredited by the American Montessori Society, The Southern Association of Independent Schools and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, now known as AdvanceEd. We offer the opportunity to share more about our school and invite you to visit during our monthly Open Houses to learn more.
Land Program from The Greensboro Montessori School on Vimeo.The GMS Land Laboratory program was devised by a team of Montessori teachers in 2004 and is now in it’s 8th year. Based on Maria Montessori’s vision of the Erdkinder, early adolescent students travel to a wooded retreat in Oak Ridge, NC every six week to eight weeks for 3 nights and 4 days, camping with no electricity and transporting their water in jugs and bins on student-made “chariots” constructed from old bicycles and baby carriages.
Dear GMS Community,
Welcome to our new website! I invite you to click on the video below, which was filmed and edited by some of our middle school students, to learn about the exciting new initiatives we have planned for the 13-14 school year. We are delighted to announce refreshed pricing for our preschool programs, an enhanced CASA after-school program that will offer 195 days of care and includes after-school enrichment classes - all at a lower cost than our current program. And we are introducing our Montessori Al Fresco Summer Program offering Montessori care all summer long! It is the perfect solution for working parents.
Another new feature of the website is Frank’s Forum. This forum is a way for yours truly to “sound off” on things I find of interest and I hope you may, also. My ‘Forum’ as opposed to a ‘Blog’ will not have a vehicle for anyone to respond on-line. I do, however, want to hear from you. If you are so moved to respond, and have the time, please drop by my office to chat. I find face-to-face communication much more interesting and enjoyable.
Recently, in this forum, I spoke of the greatest teacher I never had. Well, in this week of Teacher Appreciation, I want to take a little time to talk about some fabulous teachers who had a marked influence on my decision to enter the teacher profession.
