Academic Programs

At The Montessori School, we have three levels of academic programs for your child: Preschool, Kindergarten, and Elementary. We also offer enrichment programs in language, art, music and health and wellness. We encourage you to attend an Open House, meet with a teacher, or talk with a current Montessori parent.

Our Mission

The Montessori School’s mission is to inspire children to love learning, create, and make the world a better place. We believe in a holistic approach that fosters good global citizens and forward-thinking problem solvers! 

What is Montessori?

The Montessori education philosophy is based on the research of Dr. Maria Montessori – an Italian physician and educator. At its heart, the Montessori method emphasizes independence, freedom within limits, and a respect for the child.

Elementary has been focused on recognizing MLK all week! "This week, we focused on voting rights since it was the request of the King family to instead of celebrate, legislate. So we took that as - educate. We covered a brief history of voting rights in the US and read the book Equality Calls: The Story of Voting Rights in America by Deborah Diesen. We also read Martin's Big Words by Doreen Rappaport. We were introduced to Civil rights leader and US congressman John Lewis and his mantra “get in good trouble, necessary trouble...”. The students talked about standing up for one another - even if it's challenging. We read the book Peaceful Fights for Equal Rights by Rob Sanders. We also began reading Through My Eyes by Ruby Bridges. A biography of Amanda Gorman and her book Change Sings: A Children’s Anthem were previewed and added to our collection, as well as a kids book about racism by Jelani Memory. We are having ongoing conversations about not only the history of the civil rights movement but the work that still needs to be done today. Service work continues with artwork and letters for Crosstown residents, community food drive, neighborhood trash pick up, and the making of waterproof pet beds out of plastic grocery bags and fleece scarves and blankets." ...
