Sussex Montessori School
Sussex Montessori School (SMS) was approved as a charter school by the Delaware Department of Education in April 2018, with an expectation to open grades K through 3 in fall 2020, then to add one grade per year to eventually serve children in grades K through 6. The SMS board believes that the creation of a Montessori public school in Sussex County, Delaware will improve student learning, allow for greater choice for parents, and serve as a model for alternative approaches to education by providing a proven and innovative teaching and learning environment.
The mission of SMS is to nurture the development of empathic, collaborative, persistent, and innovative global and community citizens in accordance with the time-tested philosophy of Maria Montessori, through authentic, personalized learning experience, respectful relationships, opportunities to innovate, and a focus on global citizenship.
The school will be located in Western Sussex County, Delaware, which is a diverse, rural area with a thriving Hispanic population as well as a growing Haitian community.
