General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The development of concentration, independence, self-discipline and a sense of order and responsibility are prerequisites for success in learning as well as in becoming a citizen of the world. The Montessori approach is education for life. Jarrow's goal in using the basic tenets of Montessori is to encourage the development of responsible, caring young people who can direct their own lives, in a conscientious and thoughtful manner, and contribute to making the world a better place for future generations.

Children learn by discovery. They discover ideas on their own if given the right environment and tools. Confidence and self esteem grow from this process of observation and discovery. The Montessori method combines mixed-age classes with a carefully prepared environment of learning materials and flexible daily experiences. Highly qualified teachers and assistants facilitate the learning process by directing the children toward meaningful activity through which they discover and develop their interests and abilities and experience the outcomes of their choices. Special emphasis is placed on respect for self, for others, and for the physical environment.
