_"When our child is dropped off at the school in the morning, there is an enormous sense of comfort, confidence and excitement for all of us. When she is picked up at school at the end of the day, there is a sense of accomplishment, even at the young age of two." - Lorri O'Brien of York Beach, ME
At BMFS, "the children can be independent in their thinking and learning - going at their own pace, doing what interests them and learning from it. I love the calm, respectful atmosphere in the classrooms." - Brenda Perretti of York, ME
Brixham Montessori Friends School began as a preschool in Portsmouth, NH in 1997. Within three short years, the preschool outgrew its space and relocated to York, ME where the school increased the number of students, added an elementary program and established itself as a highly reputable Montessori school serving Seacoast Maine and New Hampshire.
Teachers at BMFS are exceptional. Highly qualified and experienced, head teachers hold a minimum of a Masters degree and a Maine state teaching certificate or certificate from the an accredited Montessori teacher education program. Professional support, low staff turn-over, and encouragement from a dedicated school community help to make BMFS a wonderful place to learn and teach.
Parents at BMFS play a critical role in the governance of the school. Parents are elected to sit on the school’s Board of Directors and many of the Board’s task forces, such as public relations, building and grounds, fundraising, and education oversight are made up of parent volunteers. Parents understand their significant contribution to the well-being of school through volunteering their time, effort, expertise, and financial resources.
