There Has Never Been a More Extraordinary Time to Celebrate SSMS! Suburban Montessori School has seen considerable growth since its modest beginnings in 1970. We have encouraged and empowered children to become effective, socially responsible leaders for five, inspiring decades. Our communities desperately need what Montessori education has to offer, especially now. We invite you to support us in our mission by enabling every child that passes through our doors to become a dynamic, confident and enthusiastic life-long learner. Although tuition income meets the school’s operating budget for the essential functions of our institution, donations and gifts allow SSMS the flexibility to supplement and enhance its core curriculum as new opportunities arise.
