Multi-age grouping of children in a collaborative, non-competitive environment enables student to learn from one another, gain autonomy, and develop positive self-esteem. In addition, the classroom provides a community-like setting where learning can take place naturally. Younger children learn from older children, while the more experienced children reinforce what they have learned by assisting others. All of our classrooms embrace an age range that allows learning to take place.
“Montessori teaches children the fun and love of learning itself. It is the only school that allows children to learn at their own pace. The results are astounding and surpass what children are doing in a traditional school setting. My six year old daughter requested chapter books for her birthday and reads simply because she enjoys it! We have no doubt that Montessori gives children a solid educational foundation that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.”
“Montessori Academy encourages children to find joy in learning. They provide an education that encourages children to be self-disciplined with an internal sense of purpose and motivation. Montessori is a warm and supportive community for children. The children are happy, intellectually simulated and secure. Montessori works!”
“Montessori provides a dynamic, encouraging learning environment. Students strive for independence through consistent, direct sensory experiences. They are encouraged to think creatively, constructively critique their own work as they develop, be collaborative and observe, experience and engage. Montessori asks them to challenge themselves enough to fail at times and helps them celebrate their many successes. The commitment of the teachers is second to none. Students leave with a lifetime appreciation of and intreats in learning, a sense of community and a better understanding of the world.”
“Montessori Academy is a school that individualizes education based on students’ abilities and performance levels, learning strengths, as well as their personal interests. Montessori develops and inspires excellence in academic, leadership and entrepreneurial development.”
