"We believe in fostering the whole child by providing an intellectually rich and challenging curriculum in a safe, caring and joyous environment. The overall purpose of our program is to provide consistent structure within which children can become self-disciplined learners. It is only through free choice that the will of the child develops. Our teachers guide children to make thoughtful choices in their work, their movements and their social interactions.
The New School is an independent Montessori educational center dedicated to serving students in three preprimary levels and grades one through six. The New School provides a developmental curriculum based on the observations and philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. Ours is a program that "follows the child". To nurture and develop each child's innate love of learning we seek the natural inclinations of children at each age level, and then we match subject matter, which will enthuse and stimulate them.
The New School embraces diversity. We admit students of any race, color and national or ethnic origin.
The New School supports a curriculum of peace education and incorporates this curriculum into all aspects of a student's education.
