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.

March's Message

Principal Photo
Dear BCMCS Parents,

This year, typical of past years, we have a significantly large number of applicants wishing to enroll their child(ren) into our school. With well over 100 students vying for limited spots, the community's overwhelming interest is just one testimony of our school’s success. BCMCS will continue to persist to educate children within an authentic Montessori pedagogy, validating our method as the most effective educational approach. With all our successes, conversely, we will never believe that we have 'arrived' as a school, as we will persist within our sustained objective to be pioneers in education, evolving to meet the demands of today's, and tomorrow’s, educational needs.

One of the processes which we, the staff of BCMCS, ensure this pioneering vision ironically coincides with the American Montessori Society's annual conference, which this year happens to be held in Philadelphia. BCMCS is especially enthralled in being chosen a visiting school, as over 50 of the expected 3,500 Montessorians planning to attend the conference will be on our school site March 12th to visit our school, staff and student population. It is our hope that the ensuing visit and the staff's involvement in the plethora of conference workshops will serve as a springboard for new ideas and fresh connections for the remainder of this year as well as into next.

As always, please be sure to periodically check the school website and calendar, as we have a number of clubs, meetings and special activities scheduled this month. The PTA also asks that you place aside futures dates related to two of their more popular annual events, as the Family Dance is scheduled for April 25th and the Trenton Thunder Outing is slated for May 29th.

As always, take care and until next time. . .
Mr. Brian Long
