The DCS Montessori Educational Foundation (MEF) raises funds to support facility improvements and special projects at DCSM through various large-scale programs and events throughout the year. Monies raised are used for everything from new carpet and paint to continuing education scholarships for DCSM teachers.

The MEF Board of Directors is composed of current or past parents of students. The MEF is not part of the school but a separate nonprofit entity. For a closer look at the differences between the MEF, the school’s Board of Directors, and the School Accountability Committee (SAC), check out this document.
