School Notes

FDBA Valley Montessori, our educational method is individualized to allow each child to progress at their own pace with a balance of academics and fine arts.

It is our belief that Education includes three basic components:

  1. the development of the child's self-esteem, his or her ability to see himself or herself as a capable and independent human being,
  2. academic excellence
  3. caring environment.


Capable and Independent

Success in school is directly related to the degree to which children believe that they are capable. It is critical that we develop within each child , a sense of responsibility, independence, and most importantly, self-esteem.

Academic Excellence

Academic Excellence should be anchored on the essential skills needed for lifelong learning. Not only the fundamental skill of reading, writing, arithmetic, but also on the developing strong work habits and strong study habits. To straighten and propel these skills it is extremely important to develop a dynamic sense of love and curiosity towards learning.

Caring Environment

A caring environment enhances the students ability to pursue academic excellence. It is our intent to provide an environment that is safe, wholesome, warm, and caring. An environment that radiates the positive feelings of home.
