- Kingsley Montessori offers a unique vision of what education can be. While our programs change to meet the needs of our students, our values and core principles are enduring.What happens in the ten years from age two to age twelve? During that Foundational Decade, a school can empower students to take ownership of their own learning and become learners for life. Inquiry-based learning, learning that is responsive to student interests and questions, creates empowerment. It combines choice with high expectations, and it encourages children to undertake new challenges. Kingsley believes in connecting ideas, skills, and knowledge in new ways; thinking critically, collaboratively, and intelligently about your work. It's about asking, not just answering, insightful questions. At Kingsley, we encourage students at every age to take responsibility for their own learning and learn by doing.
Profile last updated:
My son has been at Kingsley for 5 years and we could not be happier. Not only is the school great, but he also does after school, specialty classes, piano lessons and summer camp there. It makes life simple for a working family. The sense of community is amazing with many opportunities to get together with other families throughout the year. The teachers care deeply about the students, while at the same time teaching them independence and ownership of their work.
My family has been a part of the Kingsley community for the past eight years. In addition to providing my family with a supportive and vibrant community (we've met some lifelong friends through this community), I have Kingsley to thank for helping to foster curiosity, the ability to concentrate for long periods of time, independence, and kindness in my two children. The school does a fine job of knowing each child and ensuring the students' social development while maintaining a high level of academic rigor. The teachers are top-notch, committed educators and the benefits of the multi-aged classrooms are numerous.
