  • The purpose of the Center Montessori School is to educate children by subordinating teaching to learning so that children are empowered to continue to educate themselves throughout their lifetimes.
  • We strive to provide intellectually stimulating, unlimited learning opportunities in a physically and emotionally safe environment, respectful of the whole child, so that the child may become academically advanced, culturally enriched, socially adept, emotionally secure, and physically fit according to the child's potential.
  • The school seeks to develop competent social skills within the children by teaching them strategies for solving problems.
  • Children are encouraged to dialogue with each other in order to express their feelings and to deal with interpersonal issues.
  • They are guided by teachers who are interested in preserving the children's self-esteem and in helping them become self-disciplined.
  • Our Montessori elementary education program takes into account the child's growing transformation from one who learns through concrete examples to one who can learn from and make abstractions.
  • Consequently, one finds an array of educational hands-on materials, sequenced and structured to guide the child through the passage from the concrete to the abstract.
  • These materials span lessons of language, mathematics, and cultural subjects.

School Notes

Students at Center Montessori School can:
  • Work at their highest level possible.  We set the minimum, the child sets the maximum!
  • Work in multi age group settings which both motivates younger children to try to achieve what older kids are working on and solidifies what older children have already learned as they have opportunities to help younger children. 
  • Individual Teaching
Our Toddler and Primary classes are child centered for hands-on sensorial learning in a prepared environment that encourages children to develop
  • independence, concentration, self-motivation and responsibility
  • gross and fine motor control and coordination
  • foundations for success in language, writing, reading, and math

My daughter attended the Center Montessori School from 3 years-14 years where she has now entered an advanced program at MHS. The center prepared her academically in advanced studies. She loved the Art, Jazz Band, Chorus, and all other activities provided of the Center. All of the Teachers truely empower the children enabling them to grow into responsible young adults who "know who they are". They are grounded, well rounded human beings. Thank you, Center Montessori School
