General School Mission

"We believe that a child's early years provide a foundation of growth and development for the rest of his/her life. Research has proven that eighty percent of the child's mental development takes place before the age of eight. Children at this age are also at the prime time to learn multiple languages easily and naturally. In order to help our children develop to their fullest potential, we believe an environment must be created that stimulates their inner desire to learn and provides them with the experiences of belonging to a community valuing love, respect, and order. Not only should children learn how read, write, and compute, but more importantly they should learn how to think creatively, make decisions and choices independently, be responsible for their actions and environment, work in a group, become active citizens, and respect diversity of culture and their environment. In other words, the goal of education at this stage in life is the development of the whole child--academically, socially, physically, ethically, and emotionally. However, we recognize that each child is an individual, developing at his/her own rate. Thus we have chosen to fulfill our mission by preparing our bilingual programs and environment according to the Montessori philosophy. We not only strongly believe in the benefits of a Montessori education but we have seen the positive results in children first hand.
