Montessori Magnet follows the highly successful educational methods of Dr. Maria Montessori. Classrooms are mixed-age groups serving specific developmental stages: Primary (3-6 years; Lower Elementary (6-9 years); and Upper Elementary (9-12 years).
Communities of children support one another socially, emotionally and academically. Educators guide students to learn at their own paces, exploring and discovering based on their interests. Children learn through hands-on work. Elementary students are encouraged and plan to embark on “going-out” excursions that complement their studies/interests. Children emerge as independent, confident, compassionate, responsible participants and leaders of society. The Montessori program is Education for Life.
