Through a grassroots effort sixteen families started MGII in 1976. It remains a small school that has a family atmosphere. The Primary (2 1/2 - 6 year olds) is a Montessori classroom. The elementary classrooms are Montessori influenced. In its 33rd year, Montessori Genesis II School has a strong track record. The School is open to all students/families regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, or creed. Currently, however, the majority of the students and staff are African American.
