Parent Participation

One of the very unique things about The Model School is our excellent culture of parent involvement. Parent participation is a significant part of a successful Montessori curriculum and a great way to build community amongst our families. 


Here is some important information about our parent participation opportunities:

  • 20 hours per year; if you are unable to complete your hours, you will be invoiced quarterly at $25 per hour.

  • Each classroom has at least one room parent whose responsibilities include teacher-parent communications, community-building events, and new family orientations.

  • Once enrolled, we ask that you join a committee to complete your parent hours throughout the year. These committees often include community events, planning, or campus beautification projects.

  • We have a parent leadership group to help coordinate community events, teacher appreciation, and special fundraisers. To reach the leadership team, please email

Parent leadership hosts a monthly meeting on the second Thursday of the month from 5:30 to 6 PM and a community dinner from 6 to 6:30 PM. Attending the meeting counts towards your parent participation hours.
