This is my business. I'd like to submit an update.


Montgomery School is an independent co-ed day school for children in grades Pre-K–8, located in the heart of Chester Springs. Montgomery School's commitment to elementary education reflects an understanding that lifelong growth and success is directly related to the educational foundations that are established in a child’s formative years. Montgomery School prides itself in the deep relationships between teachers and students that help children learn with confidence as they build essential independent habits of mind. A serene 60-acre campus provides an expansive and safe oasis, on which students have room to stretch both literally and figuratively.

What is your teaching or educational philosophy?

Our philosophy at Montgomery School is to educate boys and girls with a child-centered, developmentally appropriate curriculum. Montgomery School is dedicated to educating and developing well rounded individuals and lifelong learners. To accomplish this goal, we offer a diverse, enriching, dynamic curriculum which provides all students opportunities to explore, lead, and succeed.

Developing strong character is the foundation of a well-balanced life, and is cultivated within our curriculum. By understanding each child’s strengths and potential, teachers nurture the social, emotional, and academic development of the individual child. We recognize that learning is best accomplished through experiential and practical applications. With the introduction of new perspectives, our teachers facilitate learning opportunities which develop collaborative skills, creativity, and empathy.

We believe the partnership of school and home links us to intentionally teach core values within real-world experiences. Montgomery’s unique program creates the opportunity for teachers to cultivate the specific talents of each individual learner in academics, athletics, fine, and performing arts. At the culmination of our PreK through 8th grade program, successful, confident leaders emerge, ready to make a positive difference in the world.

What is your mission statement?

Montgomery School ignites each child’s love of learning and fosters their individual talents during the most formative years in order to prepare them for future success.
