The mission of The Montessori School is to nurture and preserve each child’s natural curiosity for learning, thereby providing an “education for life” in which students develop socially and academically to their fullest potential.
Founded in 1962, The Montessori School offers toddler (ages 2 to 3), primary (ages 3 to 6), lower elementary (grades one tothree) and upper elementary (grades four to six) programs.
Accredited by the American Montessori Society and Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, The Montessori School provides a progressive, child-centered program in which students joyfully and actively engage in the learning process.
Multiaged classes are grouped heterogeneously to encourage peer teaching, sharing and natural social development. The core program focuses on language arts, math, science, and social studies and is enhanced by art, music, foreign language, physical education and outdoor education.
Numerous after-school programs are available including sports, art and instrumental music. Emerson Farm Middle School offers a Montessori-based program for grades 7 & 8. While Montessori education has been largely associated with the young child, Dr. Montessori also addressed the needs of adolescents.
There are over 200 secondary Montessori programs in the country, offering smaller learning environments with the opportunity for students to develop to their fullest potential.
Emerson Farm Middle School presents a “real life” learning approach to education where students feel academically competent and challenged, build meaningful relationships with peers and teachers, gain confidence and create a vision for their personal future.
