General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The philosophical foundation of the Montessori approach is based on the premise that education should be an aid to life. In order to develop their physical, intellectual and spiritual powers to the fullest, children must have freedom - a freedom to be achieved through order and self-discipline. Respect for a child's personality and trust in the inner potentialities are prerequisite to the foundation of an adequate educational alliance between the child and the adult."
