Montessori is a unique and innovative learning community based on the highly successful theories and principles of Maria Montessori. The primary focus of a Montessori program is to successfully prepare children to live in a multicultural society by offering all students quality instruction. Multi-aged, heterogeneous grouping of students (K, 1/2/3, 4/5, and 6/7/8) encourages cooperative learning through peer teaching and social interaction. Montessori-trained teachers work within a challenging curriculum as they guide and motivate students to experience the joy of learning.
