Our mission at Mountainside Montessori School is to provide a beautiful, rural environment for children to develop their own joy of learning and self-confidence. We give children the time, the Guides, and the environment to develop at their own pace, in their own way. We follow the child in all that we do, and we depend on our community of families to support and uphold our ideals.
For the past 14 years, Mountainside has been providing Montessori education for children from Fauquier, Prince William, Culpeper, & Loudoun counties. In 2010, our mission expanded to include sustainable agriculture, environmental stewardship, and free play in nature. As our purpose grew, so did our school community. In 2015, we opened a new 10-acre campus on Belvoir Road in Marshall, VA, which allows us to serve children from birth through ninth grade, as well as offer programs to the community at large.
Mountainside Montessori School is recognized by AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) for maintaining their standards and the high level of excellence that Maria Montessori envisioned.
