General School Mission

"Children are born with an innate love of learning. They are fascinated by the universe and eager
to discover its secrets. At Tuskawilla / Twin Rivers Montessori Schools we make it possible for each child
to learn through direct experience, in a world recognized classroom environment and through organized
outside activities. Learning evolves through discovery, and we make every attempt to instill the joy of this
discovery from the child's very first experience in pre-school until he/she leaves us after eighth grade.
The great mission of the child is to prepare himself/herself to become an adult. A child, in order to
develop his/her physical, intellectual, and spiritual powers to the fullest, must have freedom -a freedom
with responsibility that is achieved through order and self-discipline. A Montessori classroom is a childcentered
environment, stressing respect for the child, freedom of expression, self-education using special
materials, and training through use of movement and the senses.
We are dedicated to the Montessori philosophy and method of education through the senses. We
encourage our parents to be involved in our school and their child's progress. Our environment is one of
carefully planned, structured freedom.
