General School Mission

"The Lakes Area Montessori School educates and “prepares the children for life,� with the following belief statements to guide us:

We believe in an ethical and moral framework of education.

We believe that education involves the development of the “whole� person - physical, emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual.

We believe that teaching respect is a critical factor in education - respect for self, others and the environment.

We believe in a strong partnership of home and school so as to provide a consistent philosophy of education which will help all children develop to their fullest potential.

We believe that the adults in a child's life must model the qualities of integrity, goodness, and love of learning, which they wish to see in their children
