Status as of Summer 2015

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.

Warm regards,

The Board of Directors
Seqouia Montessori School
