About

Fernwood is a high-performing school which follows the Montessori method. In the Montessori classroom, children use specially-made materials to help them learn practical life skills, activities that promote concentration, math concepts, and problem solving. They also gain language acquisition skills and integrate science, history, and arts into their studies. Through research and project-based learning, students are prepared for active and involved citizenship in the larger community. All classroom teachers are either AMI or AMS certified Montessori trained professionals.

Previous Montessori classroom experience is required to enter beyond K4. Families can enroll in this school for grades K3 and K4 using the online application at mpsmke.com/EnrollMPS.
