We opened our doors in 2013 because we saw a need for a different approach to learning.
Through the Montessori style of teaching, our students are able to learn through discovery in an environment that promotes interest, exploration, freedom, and curiosity. They approach problems in a unique way, from using nature to learn math, to partnering with a student who might be advanced in a certain topic, to using learned Peace Resolution skills to talk through a conflict with a classmate.
Play and movement is human nature. So why would we restrict our students to desks all day long? The Montessori Method believes that students learn best when they have some creative freedom. This means we encourage our students to choose the workspace that best aids in learning, whether it be on the floor, at a table, or in a beanbag.
When children feel included they become stronger learners. Our school features mixed-age classrooms so that our students can work together to learn from one another. Our younger students look to older students for help, which in turn allows the older student to use their knowledge and confidence to teach and reinforce the lesson.
We care about the whole child and want to see every part of them succeed. Character Choices, our character education program, is woven into our curriculum so students discover what it means to be respectful, courageous, and compassionate.
