Our Community

Generosity, Compassion and Dedication

We not only encourage our students to give back to their community by volunteering their time and energies, but we also encourage parents to participate in school improvement projects. We believe direct involvement is the best way to make the world around us a better place, generating a sense of belonging and pride.

Interested in getting involved?

If you want to find out the best ways to get involved in the school community, look no further than the Parent Support Group, which provides opportunities to build relationships among Heartwood families as well as organizing special events, school improvements and fundraising activities.


Heartwood Feels Like Home

This sweet video was made by one of Heartwood’s talented middle school students and really captures the heart of our school. At Heartwood, we are family.


25 Years of Heartwood

In 2016, we celebrated Heartwood’s 25th anniversary with a reception and silent auction at the Matthews House, attended by 200 parents and alumni. Thanks to our community’s generous participation, we were able to raise enough funds to build the Darden House, a multi-purpose outdoor room which has since been used for everything from PE to the Thanksgiving Feast.

Music and entertainment were provided by our own Ms. Lynda, with her husband Jamie Dawson and Patrick Walsh of the Bluegrass/Americana band Kickin’ Grass, and Heartwood’s piano teacher James Catton, who also DJed and MCed for the event.

Distance Learning until May 29

Following NC governmental guidance, Heartwood will be holding all classes online for the remainder of the school year to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you would like to set up a tour or observation, please email office@heartwoodmontessori.com to be added to our interest list and we will be happy to connect with you.

Heartwood parents - we are sending updates and distance learning information via email; please check your messages and contact us ASAP if you think you might not be getting our mail.
