Celebrating YearsDear Friends,

We’re celebrating our 45th Anniversary this fall at The Montessori School of the Mahoning Valley! Since our school’s founding in 1976, we’ve been committed to offering a high-quality educational environment, grounded in the principles of the Montessori Philosophy, where children can become the best versions of themselves. 

In a Montessori classroom, children learn what it means to be a global citizen; that they are members of society and citizens of the world. Montessori education nurtures the child’s innate desire to correct injustice, to care for others, and to build a better world. At MSMV, we’re focused on what unites us, rather than what divides us. 

As 2021 comes to a close and we usher in a season of thankfulness and gratitude, we’re reflecting on the challenges we’ve overcome thanks to the commitment and perseverance of our MSMV families, and the support from our community – the support that has allowed MSMV to thrive for 45 years.

A Montessori Education is an irreplaceable gift – one that we could not continue to offer without our dedicated donors. 

As we approach Giving Tuesday, a day that aims to inspire radical generosity, we hope that you will consider supporting MSMV. Your thoughtful gift touches every part of our school. By donating, you will help:

  • Provide for vital operating expenses
  • Support MSMV’s outstanding teachers
  • Offer financial aid to families in need
  • Provide a beautiful environment where children learn respect, responsibility, and resourcefulness.

Annual giving is part of the financial life-blood of the school. Your generous contribution enables us to provide children with the education they deserve. Every donation helps.
