Welcome to Mountain Way School

A Welcome Message from the Principal 
 *Where the stars of tomorrow shine brightly today*
 Mountain Way School is an early childhood learning community serving the needs of Morris Plains’ children in preschool through second grade. Our school philosophy embraces each child entering school and recognizes his or her unique needs, abilities, aptitudes, and interests. A creative, caring, and competent professional staff encourages every child to learn, grow, and flourish within a challenging yet supportive environment. Children develop positive self-esteem coupled with a love for learning, acquisition of knowledge, and problem solving skills.  We look forward to partnering with you through your child's early school experience.  For more information about out school or programs, please contact Lindsay Vieira, Principal at 973-538-0339 x1 or
