There are many things that make MAC unique. The age range of students we serve (8 weeks to 8th grade), our candidacy member status with ACIS and AMS, our Body Safety policy and our Montessori philosophy. Below are a few things that we hope parents find useful in explaining what some of this means.

Tell Me More about Being a Body Safe School
MAC is a body safe school. Body safety includes:
Teaching children that they are the boss of their own bodies
Identifying “private parts” and using the proper terminology for these parts
How to recognize and respond to inappropriate behavior
Our staff is required to take training and we also host a workshop for parents every other year so they can become informed on body safety rules. To learn about what MAC does as a school, watch a video with our Head of School here. You can also read more about the parent workshop and training we provide here.
