State funded program for 4 year olds with an introduction to Montessori Education. Students at this age are curious, studious, loving and oftentimes quite independent. Meeting their needs requires a rich environment where they can feel safe and loved as well as challenged to explore their world.
Children in this age group are starting to realize that the world is their classroom. They are primed to study continents, cultures, scientific concepts, and great literature, mathematics and more. Children are encouraged to learn both in cooperation with each other and independently. A multi-age classroom provides a community of support.
Academic rigor increases as well as independence, time management and self organization. Students learn through experiential hands on activities. Montessori elementary programs increase cultural awareness by providing a wide range of opportunities for children to explore their culture, and that of others, through the study of history, geography, language arts, and the sciences.
We offer a classical curriculum designed to motivate learners of varied backgrounds, interests, and talents. What they share is a demanding academic environment in which their teachers inspire them to love learning and to embrace curiosity, creativity, and hard work. Providing structure and a strong foundation from the start, the curriculum allows for increasing independence as students move through the three years. Small classes permit teachers to find their students’ strengths and insist on their best efforts. Our commitment to the success of every student is absolute.

Adheres to the “Sunshine Law”
SAC members attend meetings
SAC & the school’s staff jointly decided on how to spend A+ recognition money (“determined by the school’s staff and school advisory council…”)
The whole point of school improvement is data-driven decision making. The process is SUPPOSED to be fairly simple and straightforward: The SAC reviews relevant data (which is much more than test scores), identifies problem areas, develops improvement strategies, monitors their implementation, and then starts the whole process over when the next round of data is available.
