Where are Montessori School of Durham alums now? We enjoy regular visits from MSD alums who are eager to share about their endeavors, both professionally and personally. They express gratitude for the way their Montessori education fostered their innate gifts and allowed them to follow their passions. Alums are excited to see the new campus and reunite with their teachers. Whether an award-winning cinematographer, an opera singer, a financial advisor, or a MSD teacher, our alums share a strong academic foundation, a passion for a diverse and inclusive world, and a curiosity for life-long learning. Keep in touch! We love hearing from you!
