Madison Community Montessori School (MCMS) is seeking a new Head of School. With a talented and dedicated faculty and staff, MCMS has been providing children in the Madison area with an authentic AMI Montessori experience and exceptional education for 48 years.
MCMS moved to its forever home in the fall of 2012; a nearly 22,000 square-foot Montessori facility on over 2 acres just outside Madison, Wisconsin, the state capital and home to the University of Wisconsin. In this beautiful setting, roughly 150 students, toddlers through adolescents, eagerly arrive to make choices reflecting their interests and curiosities. The Madison area is known for its numerous cultural and recreational opportunities, and both Madison and Middleton are consistently ranked as top communities in which to live, work, play and raise a family.
MCMS welcomes the fresh insights of its next leader who will have the opportunity to further the school’s mission of respecting children and their natural joy of discovery. With a thorough understanding of the competitive landscape in which the school is positioned, the new head of school will bring leadership and focus on increasing school enrollment with special attention to the upper levels. The new head of school will empower staff to creatively apply new experiences both inside and outside the classroom while at the same time, ensuring all programs continue to offer authentic AMI experiences.
MCMS’s next head of school shall possess a Master’s degree in education or a related field and a background in or commitment to Montessori education. AMI certification and a minimum of three years experience in non-profit or business leadership is preferred.
