On Being an MJDS Parent: Binoculars In The Family Room?


If there is only one thing you can do to keep your wonder-ful children's sense of wonder alive, this is it!


Think about it: The people who are going to be the next big inventors in the world are currently children.  How do we ensure that the next Marie Curie has the opportunity to recognize her true potential?

When is School Not School?

Montessori Overview - This is not a school ... At least not in the traditional sense.         


A fascinating video by pediatric neuropsychologist, Dr. Steven Hughes.


And, a quote by DeGrasse Tyson:  There is no greater education than the one that is self-driven.


Pictures of the Week 


Pictures can truly speak a thousand words, so here are two glimpses into the wonders of the MJDS environment. Enjoy!

Moving Up to MJDS Middle School


MJDS Graduates are shining in their High Schools!

They - and their parents - know that they were well prepared for that important transition. MJDS Middle School is an evidence-based programme developed specifically to nurture and enrich adolescent development.  It is no wonder that MJDS Middle School students love school!
