The Gettysburg Montessori Charter School (GMCS) is a FREE public/charter school open to students from any school district in Pennsylvania. Our charter school allows Montessori education to blend with traditional elements to bridge the gap between public school and private school. Montessori emphasizes the development of the whole child: cognitive, social, and emotional, while the charter aspect requires state testing for peer monitoring and learning measurements. Children in a Montessori class learn through hands-on activities while teachers facilitate.
Did you know? The Board of Trustees is made up of student family members and community volunteers all giving a little time each month to help keep the school growing and going strong. We need your help!
Any time you can give, any involvement you are able to have - and your commitment can be flexible as the Board understands how busy our families and lives are - would help keep the school we all love moving in the right direction at this crucial time of growth and building!
Volunteerism is an important part of the Montessori philosophy and we need all family members - parents, guardians, grandparents - to play a part in any way they can. We also need members of the community to serve on the Board, so if you know someone in the Gettysburg area who would be willing to volunteer, please let us know.
No special expertise or experience is necessary! No matter what your background, skills, or availability, there is a place for you on the Board! The Board is currently looking to fill a vacant seat and there may be several open seats for the 2019-2020 school year.
