Montessori Magnet follows the highly successful educational methods of Dr. Maria Montessori. Classrooms are mixed-age groups serving specific developmental stages: Primary (3 - 6 years); Lower Elementary (6 - 9 years); and Upper Elementary (9 - 12 years).

Communities of children support one another socially, emotionally and academically. Educators guide students to learn at their own pace, exploring and discovering based on their interests. Children learn through hands-on work. Elementary students are encouraged to plan and embark on “going-out” excursions that complement their studies/interests. Children emerge as independent, confident, compassionate, responsible participants and leaders of society.

The Montessori program is Education for Life.

What People Are Saying

Students Say : “I love to work with my friends and teachers. We learn new things every day. We are able to learn more here than anywhere in the world! I only want to go to Montessori School.”
Amanda, Upper Elementary Student

Parents Say : “I am fascinated by my child’s progress. When she was able to count to 1000 at the age of 4 that was when I realized I could not have chosen a better program for her. She was able to explain to me what the concept of 1000 meant. The classroom teachers have taken the time to explain to me how the learning concepts work. It is through the systematic way that the program progresses that she is able to learn so easily. I wish I could have been taught this way.”
Beayanka, Parent of Primary & Elementary Children

Teachers Say : “I love that we can provide this high quality opportunity to all of our students and families. Our family-like environments give each of us a special feeling- we are COMMUNITY. I cannot wait to get to school each and every day!”
