Montessori education is student-led and self-paced but guided, assessed and enriched by knowledgeable and caring teachers, the leadership of their peers and a nurturing environment. A Montessori education develops students who are capable, accountable, knowledgeable people who have the strong sense of self they will need to thrive in the real world.
Within the community of a multi-age classroom — designed to create natural opportunities for independence, citizenship and accountability — children embrace multi-sensory learning and passionate inquiry.
Given the freedom and support to question, probe deeply and make connections, Montessori students grow up to be confident, enthusiastic, and self-directed learners and citizens, accountable to both themselves and their community. They think critically, work collaboratively, and act boldly and with integrity.
