About Moore Montessori Community School

Located in Southern Pines, NC, MMCS is the first and only public Montessori school in the region. As a public charter school, MMCS is able to implement an authentic Montessori education model within a public setting for our diverse students. MMCS is inspired by Dr. Angeline Lillard’s seminal study, which highlights how Montessori equalizes and elevates academic and social-emotional outcomes for children from various socioeconomic backgrounds.
