Meadow Montessori is located on a beautiful 8 acre campus in Monroe, Michigan. The school has three buildings: an early childhood center, an elementary/secondary building, and a high school building. The grounds are home to organic vegetable beds, a hoop house, a woodshop, extensive flowerbeds, a meadow, and a display garden of specimens indigenous to Southeastern Michigan. A flock of chickens live in our “barnyard.” The school has been recognized by national organizations for its efforts at protecting indigenous habitats. The school also has a regulation soccer field.
The school utilizes a 110-acre farm within walking distance for the middle school Farm Program, summer programs, and other outdoor experiences. Our high school students are dually enrolled in Monroe County Community College classes. We use the Meyer Theater for many of our musical performances, including our annual opera.
MMS students do exceptionally well inside and outside of the classroom. Throughout the year, we focus on the four qualities that a Montessori-educated person should possess: concentration, self-discipline, love of learning, and social ability. We believe that these are the qualities that are necessary for a successful and satisfying life. Our students (elementary — middle school) take the Iowa Standardized Test each spring. Additionally, qualifying students participate in the Midwest Talent Search Explore Test (grades 5 — 6) and ACT (grades 7 — 8). Our high school students take the ACT, SAT, and Advanced Placement exams.
Although we are proud of the test results of our students, we hasten to add that this test reflects only one small facet of a successful student. Test scores are only part of the picture.
We are happy to share the results of these tests upon request.
We at Meadow Montessori School commit to value and challenge each person to build a respectful community of trust, compassion, and academic rigor. As independent, confident, and competent people, we will engage actively in the world to promote sustainability, justice, and peace.
