Welcome to SVMS. We are a diverse, authentic Montessori educational community that is built on the principles of: intrinsic motivation, self-directed learning and social responsibility. We strive to develop each student's full potential: physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually.
SVMS is a non-profit, private Montessori School licensed by the state of North Carolina and is located in Black Mountain. SVMS focuses on the Montessori approach to child-centered learning by creating an environment where children feel secure, supported, and stimulated. We believe in the child: in each dream, in each mind and in each individual, through nurturing confidence, self-motivation and cooperation we promote community awareness and enthusiasm for life-long learning. We wish to help children become individuals who respect themselves, other beings and the world in which they live. Learn More

YARD SALE RESCHEDULED: Due to the amount of snow that this storm has dumped on Black Mountain and the road conditions that come along with the white stuff, we are going to cancel tomorrow's yard sale. We had really hoped to have a way for folks to get some affordable holiday shopping done. However, the New Year can be a great time for shopping too!
We will be storing the donated items and if you still have items to bring, you can either hang on to them or bring them Monday and we will add them to store.
Thank you everyone for this great effort! Mother Nature just won this one!
