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.
Choices in learning encourage students’ love of learning and personal involvement in their work.
Our goal is to create lifelong learners which is now more important than ever, since we live in an increasingly complex, information-based society.
We strive to develop our students’ intrinsic motivation, avoiding external controls whenever possible, believing that strong, moral citizens must be guided by an inner voice rather than external approval.
We are dedicated to the Montessori philosophy of education, and to the importance of continuing to develop curricula, integrating new technology when possible, to support, update, and expand on Dr. Montessori’s over hundred years work in progress.
We are also committed to integrating new information about the way the brain functions and develops into what is already a neurologically sound approach to education.
Finally, we strive to provide a holistic learning experience that educates students physically, cognitively, morally, socially, and emotionally. To that end, we strive to help our students become independent workers, creative thinkers, strong collaborators, effective communicators, and avid problem solvers.
By attending to all aspects of our students’ development, we celebrate the inherent value in their humanity, no matter what gifts and limitations they may have.
Our music curriculum includes the world renowned Music Together program.
