About This Community

Maria Montessori believed that students reaching this “Third Plane” of development need two things:  protection during these years of physical and emotional transition and an understanding of the larger society that waits them.  Our middle school environment allows students to develop freely and safely as they test their own values and thoughts and explore the many changes and opportunities around them.  Every step in a Montessori education guides students toward finding their places in our world.

Our curriculum covers the following subjects:

  • Language Arts and Literature
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Art & Music
  • Physical Education
  • Spanish

While our students are discovering their places in our world, they will also develop skills that they will need to be successful in their next schools and beyond. These skills include:

  • Persuasive Writing and Speaking
  • Business Management
  • Project Management
  • Time Management
  • Team and Community Building

Students exiting our middle school will have explored the world, worked cooperatively to run businesses, and created their own learning opportunities. They will be well on their way to becoming thoughtful and responsible members of society.
