Summit Private School is an Accredited Montessori School.
We create nurturing environments where children will become lifelong learners who possess an enthusiasm for knowledge, a positive self-image and a strong character to best serve humanity in a way that fulfills their hearts and abilities.
As an independent, co-education day school following the teaching principles and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori, our educational process is based on respect for the individual child, respect for others and respect for all forms of life.
Basic Montessori education is the interrelationship between the child's physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual development.
We believe that children construct their minds and their world according to an inner drive.
To facilitate this construction, children need carefully prepared environments where they can absorb impressions through their senses, work with their hands and develop concepts with their imaginations and reasoning minds.
To nurture the child's spirit the environment is filled with love, respect and meaningful service to the community.
At the core goal of Dr. Montessori's philosophy is creating peace through purposeful education of the child.
"The child is truly a miraculous being, and this should be felt deeply by the educator." - Dr. Maria Montessori. To achieve this mission Summit has created a school atmosphere where children can respond to their natural drive to learn, explore, and contribute to their world.
Children may progress at their own pace and rhythm with guidance from certified Montessori teachers, assistants and support staff.
At Summit children thrive in an academic environment that honors the development of each child's inner gifts and encourages them to share their gifts for the betterment of the world in which they live.

School Notes:

Summit Private School is an independent, co-educational day school following the teaching principles and methods of Dr. Maria Montessori. We have chosen a Montessori educational approach for Summit because Montessori education is based on respect for the individual child, respect for others and respect for all forms of life. Basic to Montessori education is the interrelationship between the child's physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual development. We believe that children construct their minds according to an inner drive. To facilitate this construction, children need carefully prepared environments where they can absorb impressions through their senses, work with their hands and develop concepts with their imaginations and reasoning minds. To achieve this mission Summit has created a school atmosphere where children can respond to their natural drive to work and learn. Children may progress at their own pace and rhythm with guidance from specially trained teachers. Through the integration of these principles, Summit has created a nurturing environment where children will become lifelong learners who possess an enthusiasm for knowledge, a positive self-image and the ability to adapt to rapidly changing technology in the twenty-first century.
