Principal's Message

  • Cynthia Felton Principal

    Happy New Year!  The year 2020 brought us many surprises and unexpected challenges.  Last spring, we came together as a community to support our students and staff as they successfully transitioned to elearning. Our teachers have done an extraordinary job finding creative ways to present curriculum and keep our students excited about learning. Now in 2021, we are excited to welcome back additional students to our campus as we also engage those who continue to learn virtually.

    Thank you for choosing a Montessori education for your child. VSY emphasizes academic excellence and discovery within an environment that nurtures each student to achieve their individual greatest potential.   As a public Montessori school, we blend Montessori education with the Florida Standards. VSY supports its mission through a Montessori trained staff, a diverse curriculum, family participation and differentiated learning for each student.

    Please join me on social media as I continue to share all the amazing happenings at VSY and celebrate our staff, our students and our school. You can find me on Instagram @msfeltonvsy, on Twitter @VSYmontessori or @cyndi_felton and on our Facebook page Virginia Shuman Young Montessori.  

    I am eager to work with you to support your child throughout their years at VSY.   Please do not hesitate to email or call me should you need my assistance.  I invite you to contact me at or 754-322-9050.
