General School Mission

"The Montessori education is not a system of teaching, but a method of helping children in the total development of their personality during the fundamental period of development. The child must have freedom in order to develop his or her personality to the fullest - a freedom that is achieved through work, order, and self-discipline. The world of the child is full of sights and sounds, which at first appear chaotic. From this chaos, the child must gradually create order, and learn to distinguish among the impressions that assail his senses, slowly but surely gaining mastery of himself and his environment."
