General School Mission

"The Montessori philosophy is founded upon a recognition that children have an innate desire to learn. Montessori designed integrated materials that direct a child's learning in a form as close to natural learning as possible. Montessori materials allow children to experience each concept in a concrete manner and to work gradually to abstract understanding. This learning takes place in an environment that develops disciplined independence, intellectual curiosity, self-esteem, and logical thinking. Our goal is to use the Montessori methods, a carefully prepared environment and the best teachers to help students develop positive attitudes and behavior necessary to create the characteristics of successful learners, responsible individuals, and effective citizens.
