School Notes

  • The Montessori method is based on a respect for children and the individual's desire to learn. The children at Far Horizons are aided and directed in the process of self education by trained Montessori teachers and the Montessori learning materials. A natural inner order leads the child from interest to interest and subject to subject. The curriculum is individualized, although group lessons are regularly scheduled to present new subjects.
