Joseph S. Bruno Montessori Academy is a special place to work and learn.
Our students enjoy a natural environment rich in learning experiences and unique in the possibilities for personal growth, understanding, respect, and responsibility.
It is this closeness to nature and all that we do and discover that helps us achieve respect and love for life.
The classrooms are even surrounded by walls of windows making them seem like extensions of the outside.
Students here gain a true sense of community and belonging, and learn to accept challenges, solve problems, resolve conflicts, and grow into self-confident lifelong learners.
At Bruno Academy, we encourage our students to develop independence, responsibility, resourcefulness, and organizational skills.
Even in the lower academy students learn to use individual work plans listing their goals for the week.
When you visit Bruno Academy, you will see students working individually and cooperatively to get their work done, enjoying the total learning experience.
The enthusiasm must be seen to be believed.
Children learn the importance of having respect for one another and for their classroom environment.
We have high expectations for our students, and they learn to set higher and higher standards for themselves.
