Since the school’s founding in 1964, Santa Cruz Montessori families have been instrumental in working together to bring wonderful educational opportunities to our children. Over the years, alumni, parents, grandparents, faculty, and friends have given generously of their time and financial resources. They have touched the lives of all current families at the school and have left a legacy for future generations of children. Recognizing our diverse parent community, we welcome all gifts large and small. We are so thankful for the support that parents and friends give to SCM.
