Employer Description
For more than three decades, the Montessori School of Durham has used the method
and principles of Maria Montessori to lay the foundations for our children to become true citizens
of the world. We are a nonprofit school founded in 1976 by a group of teachers and parents
dedicated to the Montessori philosophy. MSD has been an affiliate of the American Montessori
Society since 1977, and in 1996 became the first school in North Carolina to receive AMS
accreditation. Summer 2012 saw us move to a brand new campus on six acres, opening an
exciting new chapter in our history.

MSD enrolls children from 15 months through the sixth grade. Our children’s Montessori
experience is enhanced by school families’ time, talent, diversity, and energy. Diversity at MSD
is not just a number but a dynamic experience of rich interactions among our students, faculty,
staff, and families in the classroom, on the playground, and at organized school events.

MSD is located in southwest Durham, very convenient to the Research Triangle Park and four
major universities: Duke University, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North
Carolina State University, and North Carolina Central University. Triangle residents enjoy many
cultural, historical, educational, and natural amenities, as well as a reasonable cost of living. The
beach and the the mountains are both within a few hours’ drive.
Diversity Mission Statement

MSD welcomes a diverse, inclusive community and celebrates the uniqueness of all of its members as part of our hope for a peaceful world.
