We are a community of teachers, learners, and families whose goal is to inspire passionate scholarship and compassionate citizenship, guided by a deep sense of integrity, responsibility, and determination to achieve personal best.
In order to fulfill our mission statement, our first priority must be to provide an emotional environment that is safe and nurturing for all members of our community. To that end, we are committed to providing a developmentally appropriate environment and set of expectations at each level, guided by the basic tenets of Montessori philosophy. Each classroom and the school as a whole are infused with a sense of community, founded on mutual respect. Basic values such as responsibility, integrity, peacefulness, compassion, and an appreciation of the value of work are imparted through modeling, discussion, and daily social interactions.
Our academic program is designed to be challenging, stimulating, and engaging to each student. By finding a match between students’ academic abilities and challenges offered, we maximize each student’s ability to learn at his or her level of development. Our students learn through discovery and inquiry, constructing their intelligence and body of knowledge through work that provides for authentic feedback without value judgments.
