Our mission, in partnership with teachers, parents and students, is to nurture a lifelong love of learning. Our “whole child” focus creates self-motivated, creative critical thinkers and kind, responsible global citizens. We are unflagging in our commitment to our students and strive to create an exceptional and authentic Montessori environment, so that each student may achieve their maximum potential.

Nurture in each child creativity, independence, self-confidence, and the joy of discovery.
Provide well-structured environments, order and orientation in classrooms, proper sequencing of materials, and a consistent educational approach.
Encourage sensitivity and awareness for all people and cultures as well as for the global environment.
Affirm and support the value of family-school partnerships by encouraging active family involvement.
