Announcement regarding the Indiana Choice Scholarship Program:

We have received inquiries regarding MSGL’s participation in the Indiana Choice Scholarship Program. We have not participated in this program to date. We have typically shied away from seeking state or federal monies for our programming due to the governmental involvement in our programming that comes along with accepting these monies. As we began receiving these inquiries about the Indiana Choice Scholarship Program, we did take some time to investigate how the program works, how a school is chosen to participate in the program, and what governmental expectations would be for the participating school. In the course of our investigation, we learned that all our levels of programming would have to participate in the state mandated performance testing. This requires that we have state certified personnel on staff approved to administer these tests which we currently do not. Further, this type of testing is antithetical to our Montessori pedagogy and our practices. For MSGL to participate in the program for tuition assistance, much would need to change here. There currently is no consensus regarding making such changes. Thus, there is not a plan to participate in the program.

“Christopher is a bright, quiet child who has benefited from the individualized attention and support for working at his own level and pace in the classroom. All of the teachers’ incredible patience and the calm, structured work of the classroom have nurtured his growth. The Montessori environment has allowed him to experience and learn cooperation, acceptance, and respect among all persons.”
