What brings our classrooms to life


You've heard that there are no cubicles in Palo Alto? At MFS, there are no lines of laminate desks. For more than 100 years, Montessori has shown that people realize their potential by getting up and doing rather than sitting idly by. We teach kids to pursue every possible hunch, explore their surroundings, problem-solve by pulling from multiple sources, and piece together real-world projects they can proudly point to as their own. We like to think of the world as just one big Montessori classroom and our school as the place where they can practice for it.
