Montessori Preparatory School is committed to the development of the whole child by implementing curriculum and methodology based on the Montessori philosophy of education and human development, and by partnering with parents – children’s first teachers – in this endeavor.
1.To foster a life-long love of learning through teaching, across the curriculum, which
demonstrates the interconnection of all life; and to foster the individual’s
understanding of his/her role within the whole, through the development of individual potential.
2.To structure hands-on learning environments which, while “making the match” w/students’ needs and interests, foster student-initiated inquiry/research and projects which develop understanding and appreciation of the world beyond the classroom.
3.To support each student – through individualized instruction based on observation and understanding of learning styles and abilities – to become an independent, responsible, self-disciplined and self-motivated learner who works to potential and loves it!
4.To engage families in the education of their children through – but not limited to – dialog, education in child development and Montessori/School practice, ongoing communication, community events, joint planning to address evolving needs and circumstances.
