The Glen Montessori School is a not-for-profit, child-centered, parent-inclusive Montessori school, located in the North Borough's of Pittsburgh.
It encourages self-directed learning by providing a stimulating environment where teachers respond to children's interests using Montessori methods.
The Glen respects children's differences and encourages them to make choices, thereby becoming increasingly self-directed in their learning.
As a Montessori school, The Glen operates on the principle of freedom within limits, reflecting a core Montessori belief: respect for each other and for the environment.
At The Glen, as at any Montessori school, you would see multi-aged children in a multi-graded classroom, working at their own pace with materials they have chosen, either alone or with others.
The directress relies on her observations of the children to determine which new activities and materials she should introduce to an individual child or to a small or large group.
Her aim is to encourage active, self-directed learning and to strike a balance of individual mastery with small group collaboration within the whole group community.

The Glen provides nurturing environment for each child to excell. I have sent three children to The Glen from Children's house through the upper elementary class. I know that this is the best investment that I can make in my child's future.
