Whoever touches the life of the child touches the most sensitive point of a whole which has roots in the most distant past and climbs toward the infinite future.

-Maria Montessori

The cost of tuition at MPS is lower than most private schools in North Carolina. Consequently, we constantly work to supplement our tuition through fundraising in order to honor this long-standing commitment. Our efforts help us grow, enrich our already dynamic curriculum, and increase our diversity as a community.
