General School Mission

"Our goal at Arbor Montessori is to develop the unique capabilities of each child, allowing him or her to take a positive, productive place in the larger community.

I. Philosophical Foundations and Primary Goal
Our goal at Arbor Montessori is to develop the unique capabilities of each child, allowing him or her to take a positive, productive place in the larger community. While the child is the center, he or she is not the limit of our school. Parents, teachers, administrative staff and facilities form a circle or community within which the child's growth takes place.


We seek to accomplish this goal by developing an excellent faculty, staff, and environment for learning; fostering parental understanding, support and involvement; and applying Montessori principles to the entire Arbor community.


Arbor strives to be a model community, implementing Maria Montessori's philosophy of respect for individuals, child and adult, in every aspect of school life.


Arbor will continue to meet the standards established by Association Montessori Internationale (AMI).
