- Highlawn Montessori School has continuously provided an authentic Montessori environment since its founding in 1963.
- Its Children's House offers pre-school and kindergarten classes to children ages three through six, and the elementary program teaches children in first through sixth grade.
- The Friends of Montessori Association, a not-for-profit organization, owns and operates the school.
- The philosophical foundation of the Montessori approach is based on the premise that education should cultivate the child's natural desire to learn.
- In the Montessori classroom this objective is met by allowing the child the freedom to experience the excitement of learning by providing choices.
- Respect for the child's personality and his ability to create himself is the basis for all our interactions in the classroom.
- This Montessori concept is a proven superior method to traditional education.
