General School Mission

"Sterling Montessori Academy & Charter School uses the philosophy, method and didactic material of Dr. Maria Montessori (1870 - 1952). Montessori education, based on children's developmental needs for freedom within limits, mandates a carefully prepared environment. The prepared environment guarantees exposure to materials and experiences that develop intelligence as well as physical and psychological abilities. The materials are self-correcting, interesting to children, and developmentally appropriate."
