Our holistic Montessori curriculum is a progressive model that supports each student’s creativity, happiness and full engagement in learning—key ingredients for long-term success in school and life. Come see the difference -- Multi-age classrooms; Challenging academics, foreign languages, art, music, yoga and physical fitness; Education in peace and mindfulness. Supporting the foundation of our curriculum are five essential pillars: skills, knowledge, self-expression, understanding, and appreciation. Our vision is to foster a new generation of leaders who become meaningful contributors to the society of the 21st century by expanding their consciousness, realizing their potential, and coming to feel and understand that the world is one family.   Attend an upcoming Open House which begin at 9:30  am and last approximately 1.5 hours.
