General School Mission

"The vision for our school is a Montessori school community of parents and dedicated teachers working with joyful learners. Our broadest vision is a worldwide network of similar educational programs that teach peace and tolerance so that one day the inhabitants of this world can live in peace with respect for all life and all people.

Our Mission is to provide a learning environment in which personal growth is valued as much as academic excellence. Supporting the foundation of our curriculum are five essential pillars:


Provide students with the academic and life skills they will need to successfully live, work, and achieve their goals. To inspire a passion for excellence.


Instill in them a broad understanding of, and respect for, the world and its diverse cultures. To give the children a vision of their world.


Guide them toward a deeper knowledge of themselves, their strengths, interests, values, feelings, and inspirations. To expose the children to the world of music, the arts and foreign cultures and languages.


Empower them in the realistic, creative, and harmonious expression of their own vision. To empower children with the confidence to become individuals.


Nurture their appreciation for life itself, and for all living things.
