Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of the recent inaugural Monte Carlo Night! The generosity of our sponsors and donors cannot be overstated. The hard work and perseverance of the planning committee, staff, and volunteers was phenomenal! The participants rounded out a fun-filled evening! It was a wonderful way to wind down the 41st year of Anchorage Montessori School.
As a Montessori program we are engaged in the American Montessori Society’s Pathway of Continuous School Improvement. amshq.org/Pathway
We have currently completed the move to Step 5 of the ten-step pathway. This has earned that degree of recognition on the national level along with a seal of achievement to be used on our website and printed materials.
The next immediate step is to get our final classroom lead teacher into a certified Montessori training program. That will get us to Step 7 will take at least a year and is basically and indepth self-study detailing descriptions and evidence of philosophy, mission, vision, governance and leadership, personnel and facility resources, finances and stability, records, resources, support systems, and stakeholder communication and relationships. All this will move the program closer to national Montessori accreditation. As a staff we are excited and enthusiastic about the ambitious endeavor as attaining national accreditation has been a goal of AMS since its inception.
