Montessori School Of Syracuse

The Montessori School of Syracuse provides children ages 3 to 12 with a quality education based on Montessori philosophy and methods.
We strive for our students to reach their full potential as enthusiastic, self-directed, life-long learners and caring, global citizens.
Our faculty and staff have a deep respect for each child as an individual.
In keeping with the Montessori philosophy, we aim to give each child as much independence as possible while adhering to a carefully designed curriculum.
Teachers move among the children, observing their work, introducing materials at appropriate times and directing them through a logical progression of skills.
Our students learn by working with carefully designed Montessori materials.
These materials encourage hands-on manipulation and exploration, and they help students thoroughly understand the concepts they are learning.
By encouraging students to use a personal-best approach rather than peer competition, the Montessori School of Syracuse nurtures children's curiosity, creativity and cooperation and builds self-confidence, compassion and leadership.
