Placeholder Image

The Montessori School of Camden (MSC) held its first election of board members since it became a public charter school last July. The new board members took office at the conclusion of the annual general meeting on November 26. The school had been governed until then by the charter committee that had steered the effort to receive a charter, granted by the Charter Institute at Erskine.

New board members include Nathaniel L’Heureux, Chris McKinney, Ken Newman, Lisa Plyler, Maria Pryor, and Amy Schofield.

The first order of business of the board was to elect its new officers, including Joan McCulley as president, Robert Smith as vice president, Meryssa Piper as secretary and Joseph Folsom as treasurer.

The Montessori Method of education has been a proven model since the early 1900s, and is currently used in more than 500 U.S. public schools, including more than 50 in South Carolina. MSC uses the Montessori Method to educate “the whole child” by offering multi-aged classrooms where children are encouraged to become highly motivated, independent, self-confident individuals while being given the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. MSC has operated in Camden for 39 years.
