Mission

Our mission is to provide an individualized learning environment, based on the principles of Dr. Maria Montessori, that is designed to help students become independent, life-long learners who are academically grounded and socially confident about their place in the world.

Vision

Our goal is to build an environment that will help every student explore, communicate, work and perfect skills to their highest potential. We want each student to grow in self-esteem, well-grounded in academics and joyful about learning.

A kind, caring, welcoming teachers and community. The school is a bit small, but they make up for that by using community resources. I love true Montessori approach.. students learn independence, thoughtfulness, creative thinking and community awareness in a way no traditional school can offer. I don’t worry about my daughter not having to memorize answers for tests, because here she develops the skills necessary to find the information she needs. A Montessori student is never lost.

Parent

We have a very bright child who was bored at the local Catholic school and a child with significant learning delays. Both children are THRIVING. The education is exceptionally child-centered–math, english, and science learnings have been remarkable. We have found this school to be nothing less than flexible, loving and supportive. Can’t recommend highly enough!
