"Mission Statement of Jefferson Montessori Academy

The mission of Jefferson Montessori Academy (JMA) is to serve the children of Carlsbad by enabling each child to reach his or her highest potential using the Montessori method of instruction and other educational programs and procedures that promote critical thinking, encourage creativity, promote respect for others, and ultimately strengthen the freedoms guaranteed to citizens by the Constitution of the United States of America.

At JMA, we are seeking to produce life long learners who are politically informed, responsible citizens of the world and active leaders, Our school mission states “JMA's mission is to create a peaceful academic environment where students develop character, become life-long learners, and successful world citizens.“ To do this we are providing a wide range of learning experiences that bolster the joy and teach the discipline of learning throughout each grade level. We provide a Montessori school as an alternative to the traditional school environment.
