General School Mission

"The primary purpose of the FSMS is educational, based on the principles, techniques, and philosophy advocated by Dr. Maria Montessori, using a constructivist, collaborative, developmental, and experiential approach to the whole child as noted by Jean Piaget and other researchers such as Alfred Adler, John Dewey, Howard Gardner, Daniel Goleman, M. Scott Peck, Brian Swimme and Riane Eisler. These educational philosophies are also matched in Quaker principles and values that lead us to acknowledge the inestimable value of each human being, consensus decision making, non-violent conflict management, inner reflection, integrity, simplicity and social responsibility.
