JMS is dedicated to providing our students a warm, nurturing community of academic excellence. As a recognized Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) school, it is our mission to provide an environment where every child meets his or her full potential. Our Board of Trustees is committed to maintaining this high quality experience as economically as humanly possible. The entire staff of JMS works very hard to implement that commitment by operating exclusively with funds provided through tuition. Both the Trustees and the Faculty understand that this fiscal discipline is essential to the long-term stability of JMS. Yet there are challenges.
We want our children to have more than an economically possible education. We want them to have an excellent academic experience. We want our children to participate in meaningful activities that promote growth, cultivate friendships and build community. We want our children in fully enrolled classrooms, guided by high caliber AMI trained faculty, and filled with up-to-date learning materia.ls. We can only do this with your help.
This year we are asking you to partner with us as we move to the next level of greatness by contributing to our Annual Fund.
Every gift makes a difference and is critical to achieving our 100% participation goal. No minimum amount is required to donate. We ask only that if you are committed to the future of JMS, you invest at a capacity level compatible with your family’s ability to give.
