General School Mission

"At Love of Learning Montessori School education is a hands-on experience. Students learn by trial, error, and discovery. Our students think for themselves. Rather than present students with the \"right answers\", we ask the \"right questions\" of the students, and challenge them to find the answers on their own. Our students do their own research, analyze what they have found, and come to their own conclusions. As a result, the children tend to be fully engaged and self-directed in the learning process. They gain a sense of accomplishment, closure, self-confidence, and self-respect while developing a strong sense of order, independence, and personal responsibility.

The Montessori curriculum is stimulating, challenging, and offers amazing substance and depth. The Montessori child learns to teach himself. The teacher prepares the classroom for the child who then interacts with his peers and with the materials to create himself as an individual. We help each child learn how to learn, preparing for the changing world of tomorrow by…

inspiring students to think for themselves
encouraging them to pursue their educational passions
teaching them to plan and organize their daily learning
teaching them how to do their own research
exposing students to diverse perspectives and modeling
respect for different points of view
encouraging students to evaluate their own progress
instilling a tradition of community service
encouraging students to think creatively"
