Visiting MFS

All families who are considering Montessori Family School are encouraged to visit the school, to get a first-hand sense of the school’s programs, and meet the members of the MFS community.

Tours and Open Houses

Tours and Open Houses offer a wonderful opportunity to observe students and teachers in the classroom during a normal school day. During your Tour or Open House, we will introduce you to the School’s Programs, explain the application process, and answer any questions you may have.

  • Tours of both campuses begin in mid-October, 2016.
  • Open Houses start in mid-October and be held a few times during the school year.

During your Tour or Open House, you will have the chance to speak with the Head of School and our Director of Admissions, to learn more about MFS and the Montessori philosophy.

Student Visits

Early Childhood Campus

Once your child’s application is received, our Director of Admissions will contact you to schedule a visit for your child.

Elementary/Middle School Campus

Once MFS has received your child’s application, you will be contacted to arrange a student visit. Your child will come in during the morning of a regular school day, and stay for a half-day visit (2 hours for a Kindergarten applicant). This is great way for your child to become more familiar with the school’s classrooms, and for teachers to assess your child’s skill level. Visiting students are immersed in the classroom culture, and usually even the most reluctant child has a wonderful and positive experience.
