Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Montessori principles teach us that knowledge is its own reward.
The staff strives to:

Provide a caring, diverse environment in which knowledge is readily absorbed.

Observe each child and provide careful guidance.

Stimulate each student to pursue topics eagerly and independently.

Encourage learning to occur as much as possible through independent discovery.
