Grades: 1-5 | 52 students
"The Montessori School of St. Andrews was formed almost 10 years ago to give the Midlands an educational alternative faithful to Montessori’s guiding principle: “Follow the child.” We believe that, with the proper environment, children will seek knowledge.
They will enjoy learning, and school will be a positive, uplifting experience.
At The Montessori School of St. Andrews, our certified, experienced Montessori teachers help each student put together his or her puzzle.
Montessori materials are designed to begin teaching abstract ideas using concrete methods, such as counting beads or putting together geography puzzle maps.
Over time, these concrete materials fall away as the student masters abstract ideas.
The purpose of the classroom teacher is to guide the students in their academic and social endeavors."
