General School Mission

"The mission of Mt. West Montessori School is to provide an educational environment that cultivates an enthusiasm for learning and encourages children to reach their fullest potential.

We strive to provide the highest quality Montessori education possible: emphasizing basic academic disciplines, the acquisition of English and Spanish Language proficiency, the promotion of independence, self-respect and respect for all others.
Each child comes into the world with a unique set of abilities and a beautiful personality ready to unfold. An important task for adults is to provide an environment, which supports this most formative stage of development while also providing safe guidelines and limits.
