General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The aim of Montessori education is to foster competent, responsible, adaptive citizens who are lifelong learners and problem solvers.

Learning occurs in an inquiring, cooperative, nurturing atmosphere.

Students increase their own knowledge through self- and teacher-initiated experiences.

Learning takes place through the senses.

Students learn by manipulating materials and interacting with others. These meaningful experiences are precursors to the abstract understanding of ideas.

The individual is considered as a whole. The physical, emotional, social, aesthetic, spiritual, and cognitive needs and interests are inseparable and equally important.

Respect and caring attitudes for oneself, others, the environment, and all life are necessary.
