What makes a Montessori education special?

Montessori schools hold a profound respect for each child as a unique individual, supporting their social and emotional development as well as their academic progress.

Montessori children are known for their warmth, kindness self- confidence and respect for others.

We create warm and supportive communities of students, teachers and parents. Your child will never get lost in the crowd!

We do not focus on memorization; our goal is to help students to understand and apply what they learn. Our students learn through hands-on experience, investigation and research. They become actively engaged in their studies rather than passively waiting to be spoon fed.

We challenge students to develop a passion for excellence in whatever they do.

Montessori is designed to recognise a wide range of learning styles, helping students to learn most effectively.

Montessori children tend to develop self–discipline and an internal sense of purpose and motivation. These habits truly pay off in college and throughout their lives.

Montessori schools reflect an international curriculum and diverse student body. We give our students a global perspective.

Our curriculum is integrated and every class teaches critical thinking , composition and research. History lessons link architecture, the arts, science and technology.

Our students learn through collaboration and work together on major projects. They strive for their personal best.
