School Notes:

Phoenix Montessori Academy environment is designed for experiential learning. Everything is accessible to the children and is readily available for their use. The materials are beautiful and carefully prepared in order to spark curiosity and stimulate the desire to explore. They are self-correcting, thus fostering independence and auto-education. The opportunity to realize and correct one's own mistakes enhances a student's sense of self-confidence and independence.

Phoenix is a 15 on a scale of one to ten! Our family loves the bonds created between student and teacher in each grade. PMA has a warm, loving, caring environment well suited to the independent learner as well as the student who learns in non-traditional ways. Students are treasured as individuals and parents are welcome. PMA truly embraces the Montessori philosophy of educating mind, body and spirit.
