Head of School Katherine Rucker, Assistant Head of School, Markisha Young, and board member Taylor Clement discuss the benefits of a 'free' public Montessori School education and what a rarity it is to have a public option in a non-urban area, since the majority of Montessori schools nationwide require a private school tuition cost model.
In discussing this option there is also a wonderful opportunity to pursue the acquisition of the Southern Pines elementary school on May St. in the downtown Southern Pines area to accommodate the growth of the Moore Montessori school and preserve the character of the downtown corridor.
More than that, these three gifted women walk us thru the process of learning and the process of in class non-punitive discipline in a Montessori environment.
In a time when the demographic shift continues to change and the demand for the best schools for our children is paramount, this ‘no cost’ alternative for the best elementary school education and the long term benefits of preserving the downtown area of So. Pines makes so much sense on every level.
