Our Mission

Bucks County Montessori Charter School makes an individualized educational experience consistent with Montessori principles available to elementary students within the Pennsbury and surrounding school districts. The vision of the founding coalition was that the BCMCS would be a model Montessori School, providing a superior learning environment for its students through implementation of individualized Montessori curricula.

August's Message

Principal Photo
Dear BCMCS Community,

On behalf of the entire Bucks County Montessori Charter School Staff, we truly enjoyed seeing all the cheerful, smiling student faces come through the front door, for what we all anticipate to be the start of another, spectacular school year. We remain confident that our beliefs and adherence to the Montessori pedagogy, with the support of our committed Board Members and dedicated PTA, will once again coalesce into another successful year.

This will be our third transitional year within our newly formed ‘Modified-Balanced School Calendar’, which no longer implements the 'Intersession Concept,' but does spread the days [185 student days in all] more evenly throughout the year. New this year are further expanded I Pad accesses in all classroom settings, a converted and expanded Kindergarten classroom space, and a new staff member in the Upper Elementary.

Remember that the first two days of school are half days for our Kindergarten students, as it allows for an incremental, transitioned phase-in for our youngest population. Lunches will not need to be provided for Kindergarten students these first days, but will need to be for our Elementary students. The PTA sponsored hot lunch program has yet to be finalized for this year—once so, you will be notified. Also note that our Back to School Night has been set for Thursday, September 4th. Be sure to follow the school’s Quick Reference Calendar, found in the Quick Links section of our home page under Calendars, for all such listings of pertinent school events.

Again, we ask that all parents follow and adhere to our student delivery policy procedure by dropping your child off at the side sidewalk area, remaining in your car, where staff will be assigned to greet and assist the students.

Please note the Bus Schedule that has been attached to the 'Latest News and Notices' section of our home page, as well as the updated student class rosters. Also in this section a direct link that you can manage the manner by which these types of OneCallNow messages are relayed.

On behalf of the entire BCMCS staff, know that we will continue in our quest to create a sound Montessori pedagogical environment — one that does not necessary reflect what society is, but rather, models what society should be. As Maria Montessori stated, education "develops spontaneously in the human being within the proper classroom environment … and can encourage a brilliant bloom in even a desert of deprivation.”

Best wishes to all for a fantastic and wonderful 2014-15 school year.
Mr. Brian Long
