School Notes

  • Our program is designed to fulfill the needs of the whole child.  We strongly follow the principals of Dr Maria Montessori, which is based upon the philosophy that children learn best when engaged in purposeful activity. It is our position that every child is an individual who deserves to be respected and honored and should be given lessons according to his/her unique style and potential in a clean, safe, well-equipped environment. Our teachers, staff, and families are partners in promoting good character and values, such as kindness, compassion, respect for all living things, as well as respect and care for the environment.  Together we are committed to helping the child become aware of his/her responsibility and importance within the community.It is our goal to provide every child with a strong academic foundation, to help build a positive self-image, encourage continued community service, and to inspire them to become self motivated independent, life long learners.

School Reviews

This school is very loving and warm. It was the perfect place to send my children. My first and second graders had attended one of the most competitive private programs only to feel "my teachers do not care about me". Not here at EMMA. We truly value and appreciate the warmth of the teaching style at Emerging Minds.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
