Friends, Families, and Supporters of Sequoia Montessori School:
After many years of hard work, new friendships, and passion to provide a public Montessori option for the Salem community, the Sequoia Montessori School (SMS) Board of Directors has decided to bring our efforts to an end and dissolve the school’s non-profit status.
This decision was made by the SMS Board due to a lack of support from the Salem-Keizer School District and Oregon State Board of Education for the proposals presented.
We hope this does not discourage you from continuing to encourage and develop Montessori and student-centered learning options in our community.
There is a time for everything. The SMS Board is confident a new group of passionate individuals will persevere and create a school that provides hands-on, self-paced, collaborative, challenging, and joyful learning for our children.
The SMS Board cannot begin to thank you for your vision, support, and patience throughout this process.
The Board of Directors
