Mission Statement

Bucks County Montessori Charter School will make an individualized educational experience consistent with Montessori principles available to elementary age students. Montessori principles are based on the philosophy and methodologies of Dr. Maria Montessori 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.

September School Message

Dear BCMCS Families and Students,

What a magnificent time this, the beginning part of the school year, brings about. Already, our students have had opportunities to demonstrate themselves academically, artistically and (especially) socially -- they are truly having fun catching up with old friends and meeting new ones.

We do hope that you were able to both enjoy and learn from last month's Back To School Night for your child's class. Recognize that if you were not able to attend, your child's teacher will be able to get you a handout containing the agenda notes.

Please note that our Fall Clubs, those which are run by outside agencies ['Young Rembrandts' Art and 'Shining Knights' Chess] and our own internal School Clubs, will begin sometime in September. Look for detailed information sent home in your child's backpack as well flyers/order forms that are/will be posted in the After School Activities tab.

In addition to the staffing changes mentioned over the summer, know that our Art teacher position has also changed, as Mrs. Branchide has decided not to return. Noelle Leone, whose vitae includes Art Instruction in varied school settings as well as past teaching experiences, has accepted the position. She has recently obtained both her Bachelor and Masters in Painting & Drawing and Visual Arts respectively. Be sure to welcome Ms. Leone to BCMCS.

Last but not least, BCMCS has just achieved the ranking of #3 in the 2018 Best Elementary Charter School in Pennsylvania category by Niche K-12 Schools, a renowned agency who utilizes rigorous analysis of academic data from the U.S. Department of Education to determine school standings. We are truly proud of this distinguished honor.

Looking forward to continued successes and accomplishments throughout the 2017-18 School Year! Take Care, and until next time . . .
Mr. Brian Long
