Montessori Academy's vision is that each student
will become an independent, confident, motivated learner, and a responsible community member as a result of the dynamic partnership between
students, parents, and teachers.
This partnership within the exceptional Montessori environment, while developing these characteristics, enables each student to become a life-long learner.
We do not, nor have we ever counted students in “minority classes” to differentiate these students from non-minority people; this is part of our culture of acceptance. Walking through the classrooms is the best way to experience our multi-cultural, multi-racial community of students and teachers. We have students and teachers who are African American, Middle Eastern (Indian & Arabic), Hispanic/Latino, Pacific Islander, African (not American), and Caucasian. Religious backgrounds include Christian, Jew, Hindu, Muslim, and others.
We celebrate our multi-cultural and multi-national community each year in the Annual International Festival when we invite parents and grandparents to participate in a day of sharing their culture. All students are encouraged to visit booths set up with displays of indigenous art, crafts, skills, traditional apparel, and food. Performances by different ethnic groups feature dance and music.
