School Notes

  • The mission of The T.E.C. Schools are to cultivate children's natural curiosity and educate them to reach their highest potential and become accomplished, moral, and intrinsically satisfied individuals. Using the scientific tools of education in a Montessori environment, students meet their intellectual, social, and emotional needs by engaging in hands-on, real-life experiences to prepare for life.
  • The interdisciplinary curriculum at The T.E.C. Elementary school is carefully planned to develop the academic, social, and emotional skills of students in grades K-5. Language and math topics are taught at each student's individual level with Montessori materials, while science, history, geography, and practical life skills are introduced as big concepts. Students are then free to choose the follow-up activities at their level in each of these subjects. Technology, art, music, and fitness integrate history, geography, math, and language skills. Students not only study the fundamentals of each of these disciplines but also participate in long-term projects to gain proficiency in each area.
  • At The T.E.C. Schools we believe that true education lies not only in imparting academic skills but also in developing a sense of purpose in life. Our code of conduct is defined by the values we embody. At the T.E.C. Schools, faculty, and staff members, students, and parents live by six core values that define how we work and treat ourselves and others.
  • > Be respectful.
  • > Seek truth.
  • > Strive for excellence.
  • > Achieve balance.
  • > Live with dignity and integrity.
  • > Be joyful.

School Reviews

This school provides a wonderful, hands-on learning environment with a Montessori curriculum. The educators are caring and and extremely communicative. They care so much about every individual student and their development. My son loves his schools days. He is a sensory and science lover who has discovered his love of the arts at this amazing school. His confidence and academic achievement have soared.
