Mission Statement

Bucks County Montessori Charter School will make an individualized educational experience consistent with Montessori principles available to elementary age students within the Pennsbury and other surrounding school districts. Montessori principles are based on the philosophy and methodologies of Dr. Maria Montessori, a physician in Italy at the turn of the twentieth century, who believed that children learn best by doing. In our Montessori school, this goal is accomplished through active pursuit of many different integrated learning experiences: physical, social, emotional, kinesthetic, as well as cognitive. The environment we provide facilitates intellectual, emotional, and social growth, thereby empowering our students to become responsible, confident, and caring global-citizens. Our goal is to enable children to become young adults possessing strong independent and analytical thinking skills, as well as an enduring love and passion for learning.

March's Message

Principal Photo
Dear BCMCS Parents,

March, named after the Roman god Mars, originally held its place as the first month of the year. In ancient Rome, several festivals commemorating the god took place, presumably preparations for the pioneering or campaigning season, since Mars was the god of war. Ironically, preparations for our Montessori 'pioneering and campaigning' coincides with March as well, as this month the BCMCS Montessori staff prepares for its 'crusade' at the American Montessori Society's Conference, which this year is being held in San Diego. It is our hope that the staff's involvement in the plethora of conference workshops will serve as a springboard for new ideas and new connections for the remainder of this year as well as into next.

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 150 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. Despite our successes, 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.

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.

As always, Take Care and until next time. . .
Mr. Brian Long
