Far Horizons Montessori School, Inc. was started over twenty years ago expressly to meet the challenge of providing excellence in education for today's child.
More than ever before, students face the monumental task of sorting through and refining the barrage of stimuli they are confronted with daily in order to develop the person they will become.
As the world becomes ever more challenging, so do the tasks of teaching and learning.
Sharing their pool of knowledge and vast experience, the staff recognizes the need for providing an environment wherein the child can have the guidance and direction to grow independently, secure in the fact that they are an important part of their classroom and their world.
At Far Horizons, the school, the teacher, the student and the family all play integral roles in the educational process.
The school's job is to provide a quality learning environment complete with a relevant and meaningful curriculum.
The teacher has the challenge of getting to know each of their students as a unique individual and providing appropriate academic work to challenge specific talents and abilities.
The student too learns of their responsibility in the learning process.
It is the student's job to complete assignments in a timely and accurate manner.
The self-esteem that comes from going the extra mile, pushing a little bit harder, going beyond what is easy to achieve, what may once have been thought to be unachievable, provides the student with the confidence to believe that, through work, their dreams and goals are attainable.
Primary and Jr. High students have bi-weekly classes in foreign language, providing them with an opportunity to learn to speak, read and write the language at an optimal time in their development for the acquisition of a second language.
