During the first visit to our school we will discuss with you the benefits of a Montessori education for your child  You will also tour the school and see a Montessori classroom in action. Click here to schedule a school tour.

Some differences you may notice between our classrooms and a traditional classroom are:

  • Students are encouraged to challenge themselves with the classroom lessons. Students work at their own level of accomplishment and at their own pace.
  • Students are encouraged to take initiative and pursue topics of individual interest while still completing the expected level of learning across the curriculum.
  • Students are able to work individually or collaboratively to complete the lessons.

Children come for a classroom visit.

During the classroom visit children spend time in the classroom under the supervision of a classroom teacher.
