General School Mission

"We will do whatever is within our talents and capacity to protect the right of each child to have the freedom and opportunity to develop his or her potential.

From the Children's Bill of Rights,

The American Montessori Society

The mission of the Alfred Montessori School is to provide a living-learning-playing environment in which children can develop their individual capabilities and all areas of intellectual growth, and can enjoy, embrace, and have a healthy curiosity about life and the world around them. The goal is to balance the relationship between freedom and structure so that children discover for themselves the concepts inherent in the learning activities and take pride in doing real life work with child-size tools. Through these practices, children become active participants in the life of the school, learning to see themselves as a part of the community.
