    What Makes Our School Unique?

    Montessori begins with a deep respect for children as unique individuals.They work from deep concern for their social and emotional development. Montessori schools are warm and supportive communities of students, teachers, and parents. Children do not get lost in the crowd!
    Montessori consciously teachers children to be kind and peaceful. Montessori classrooms are bright and exciting environments for learning. Montessori classes bring children together in multi-age groups, rather than classes comprised of just one grade level. Normally they span three age levels. Children stay with their teachers for three years. This allows teachers to develop close and long term relationships with their pupils, allows them to know each child's learning style very well, and encourages a strong sense of community.
    Students are taught to manage their own community and develop leadership skills and independence.
    Montessori students rarely rely on texts and workbooks because many of the skills and concepts that chilren learn are abstract. Montessori relies upon hands-on concrete learning materials. The goal is to develop students who really understand their schoolwork. Montessori students learn through hands-on experience, investigation, and research. Monterssori challenges and sets high expectations for all of our students.
