Highlawn Montessori School

  • 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.
