Whether you are considering Jarrow for the very first time, or already know and love our school as student, parent, alum, grandparent or friend, we welcome you. We are Colorado’s first Montessori school and as Jarrow’s Interim Heads, we offer our admiration for the spirit of industry, generosity and respect that have long guided this school community.

It’s an auspicious moment in time – as we prepare for the arrival of our permanent Head of School. This year of transition is offering opportunities to hone our mission and deepen our convictions and practices to ensure a strong and visionary future. As leaders, we bring decades of experience in Montessori’s two most effective orientations, the American Montessori Society and Association Montessori Internationale.

This spring, we look forward to hosting a portion of the AMS National Conference. Teachers and administrators will spend a day of Professional Development on the Jarrow campus. This will be an honor for our school, and a great opportunity to undertake dialogue with colleagues from all over the country. Dr. Montessori’s vision of Education for Life will be both inspiration and a binding force – just as it is each and every day as our students engage with purpose and joy.

With gratitude,
Mary Zeman, Interim Head of School
Mercedes Dugan, Interim Associate Head of School
