Core Values & Guiding Principles
Love of Learning
We are committed to the child-centered Montessori method of education where children are actively engaged, self-directed learners demonstrating critical thinking, scientific, cooperative, and problem-solving skills, and where the community of adults, teachers, and parents model these skills, engaging the children and one another in the same way.
We believe the truest form of excellence is being true to what you do and striving to do it to the best of your ability. We also recognize that our own excellence is enhanced when we support and encourage others' excellence.
We believe respecting others means recognizing the individual spirit of every person, celebrating our differences and uniqueness, and encouraging freedom in the context of responsibility, self-discipline, and compassion. In this way, we recognize our interconnectedness and become stewards of our families, our community, and the world.
We are a learning community of children and adults committed to excellence and the optimal development of children's intellectual, social/emotional, physical, creative, and spiritual potential. Through an unparalleled Montessori education, children are well-prepared to succeed in the 21st century and to contribute to the betterment of our world.
Our purpose is to educate children two to twelve years old through a non-sectarian, Montessori program which nurtures a lifelong enthusiasm for learning, encourages a commitment to the community, and fosters a stewardship of the natural world.
