The parents, leaders and faculty are preparing the next generation of Martha’s Vineyard for future success, aiming to exceed the Massachusetts State Standards for each grade by fostering each student’s potential to become bright, outside-the-box thinkers – creative and open-minded about the future.
Vineyard Montessori School (VMS) is an independent non-profit school educating children from toddlers to grade eight. An exceptional progressive school, VMS fosters self-motivated, creative, independent thinkers who will develop within themselves the foundational habits, attitudes, skills and ideas which are essential to a lifetime love of learning. The mission of Vineyard Montessori School is to offer an equitable and joyful environment for children, while partnering with our families and collaborating with the community, to foster a lifetime love of learning. VMS is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees.
We are also deeply committed to the arts, culture and our community. Our arts curriculum strives to make meaningful connections with the students’ classroom work and the community around them. Exploring the environment with various field trips, our students broaden the scope of their studies and bring meaning to their learning.
