Montessori Moment

School Accreditation

The Montessori School of Bowling Green is proud of the national accreditations we hold. MSBG was the first accredited Montessori school in Ohio and remains one of the premier accredited institutions in the area.

Accreditation is a service provided to full-member schools by the American Montessori Society. The Montessori School of Bowling Green was first accredited in 1982 and was approved for re-accreditation last year, effective through 2020. 

During the application process, every aspect of the school is examined and documented, including governance, curriculum, fiscal and personnel policies, facilities, health and safety practices, teacher preparation, and learner outcomes.

All AMS accredited schools must maintain compliance with school accreditation standards and work toward continuous improvement. Each accredited school submits a yearly report outlining progress toward the objectives in its strategic plan.

The Montessori School of Bowling Green is also accredited through the National Council for Private School Accreditation.

GL Scrip
GL Scrip is a great way to earn free tuition money!
Did you know that our school offers a program that pays rebates on gift card purchases which can be applied directly to your tuition account?  GL Scrip is a nonprofit organization that sells gift cards which pay rebates back to the school in your name.  These rebates range anywhere from 1.5% to 18% of your purchase.  Last year, 27 of our families participated in this plan and earned a combined $6,323.63 in tuition credits! There are hundreds of businesses that participate in the GL Scrip program.  With a little planning, you can earn credits by shopping at your normal establishments and eating at your favorite restaurants.  Here is just a sample of the cards that are offered in the GL Scrip program:

Kroger Rewards
Kroger Rewards 1st Quarter Payment Has Arrived!
For those of you participating in the Kroger Rewards program, the 1st quarter payment has arrived!  Due to privacy concerns, Kroger no longer provides individual card detail to the school with the payment.  However, each of you can log in to your Kroger account online and print out the benefit that was paid on your behalf.  If you then turn in this statement to the school office, we will credit your tuition account for that amount.  Be sure to have any of your friends and family that signed their cards up with Montessori as their charity to print out their statements as well.    We will need all statements turned in to the office no later than September 15, 2013.  After that time, any remaining benefit will be donated to the CAPE parent association and the school scholarship fund.
Here are the instructions to print out your form:
1)       Go to www.kroger.com
2)      Click on “Sign In” and enter your e-mail and password.
3)      Click on My Account -> Account Summary
4)      Select File -> Print
5)      Write your student’s name at the top of the statement
6)      Turn the statement into the school office by September 15th
If you have any questions about the Kroger Program, feel free to contact Alisa Suelzer at Alisa.Suelzer@gmail.com.  If you would like more information on how you can benefit from the Kroger Rewards program, see the materials included in the registration packet or contact Alisa and she will be happy to help you get started.  It is a super easy way to earn free money!
