School Notes

  • Traditional models of education place the teacher at the center of the classroom. At ASM, the focus of our classrooms is the child and learning is individualized. Students take responsibility for their learning, become independent, and are creative in their work. Our students are encouraged to follow their interests, a key indicator in students` enjoying school and becoming life-long learners. ASM`s educational model spans grades pre-k to eight and our classrooms combine children of multiple ages; therefore we see leadership and mentoring skills develop in our students as they progress through their educational continuum.
  • Our Montessori environment is intentionally peaceful and provides children with opportunities to practice skills that will help them navigate social situations with grace. Our students can be heard encouraging their peers and offering to lend a helping hand. Your children will be greeted each day with a handshake from the head of school and their teachers, because each individual child is important to us! Perhaps most significant, we see our children as so much more than students and are committed to helping them grow as respectful and well-balanced individuals who learn to see the world beyond themselves.
