School Notes:

Education at LMS is based on the theories and work of Maria Montessori. This child- centered approach views the primary task of education as allowing children to discover knowledge--and ultimately, themselves--by engaging in meaningful, self-directed activity in a stimulating and nurturing atmosphere. The aim is to help children grow socially, emotionally, cognitively, aesthetically, and physically while also developing self-awareness and an understanding of themselves as members of the world community. We view children as active participants in their learning. Children discover for themselves how to use their intellects and temperaments, how to see and understand and remember. By working to master the carefully prepared classroom environment--both individually and in concert with other students--the children develop the concentration, self-confidence, independence, and self-discipline that will enable them to become life-long learners and problem solvers.
