We inspire and guide children to love learning, to love one another, and to love the world around them.

Welcome to MSNV!

We are delighted that you are including MSNV in your school search.

We know that finding the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. We also know that it can be overwhelming. We are committed to guiding you through the process and sharing more about our school; our educational philosophy and mission; and the Montessori approach to learning.

Sometimes, when you find the right school, you just know it. As the years pass and your two- year-old moves through the Primary program and into the Elementary classes, your initial hunch is validated. As an MSNV parent myself, I am reminded why I chose MSNV daily. I know I made the right choice because at MSNV my child is loved, valued, and inspired to become her full self.

With a hands-on academic program that emphasizes self-directed learning and critical thinking skills, MSNV is the place where students foster meaningful relationships and develop practical life tools needed to succeed in an ever-changing environment. We are a community of engaged parents, dedicated and visionary teachers, and, of course, happy, young explorers. We’d love for you to join us!

I encourage you to explore our website, read our viewbook, and call me with any questions. To get a better sense of the community here at MSNV, I invite you to visit us. We look forward to meeting your family!
