The Board of Advisors Welcomes You!

The Board of Advisors is a community led group, which serves the school by helping to sponsor and coordinate school events, providing feedback to school leadership about our families' interests and priorities, and helping with school fundraisers. 

We believe in the intercultural and innovative approach to education the school offers. Our intentionally inclusive community

is important to us, and we welcome you!

Here your voice matters and is heard. Together we shape the school's vision towards the mission.


Castle Island provides world-class and accessible education fully immersed in English and Spanish in a fully implemented Montessori learning environment for children of the Capital Region of New York.



We inspire learning by honoring each child’s potential in a world-class learning environment designed to foster curiosity, collaboration, and innovation. Immersion in a bilingual, diverse Montessori school will offer our students the unique challenges and opportunities to become creators of solutions and leaders of a technologically advanced, environmentally vital, peaceful global community.


The Advisors hold quarterly community meetings. All current and alumni parents and grandparents, community partners, and school staff and leadership are invited to attend!

"You are joining more than a school, you're joining a school family!
The small size means there are many opportunities to come together as a community and celebrate the children's achievements.
The children also develop close bonds across age groups, providing opportunities for them to mentor and to be mentored."
