Located on the beautiful island of Martha‚Äôs Vineyard, VMS was founded in 1975 by a group of dedicated, determined parents who embraced the principles and educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori.  After being housed at several locations, the School purchased its present facility at 286 Main Street and Tashmoo Avenue in Vineyard Haven.  In 1995 the School added to its Primary program for children ages 2.9 through 6 an Elementary class serving children ages 6 to 9 years old.  Currently this elementary classroom is the only private elementary option for parents on the Island.
