Our Mission and Vision

Mission of Montessori Peaks Academy

It is the mission of Montessori Peaks Academy to achieve high standards of individual excellence by guiding the whole student through an exceptional learning experience based on the educational philosophy of Maria Montessori.

Montessori philosophy and methodology is based on the education of the whole child. This not only includes cognitive and academic development, it also concentrates on the emotional, physical and social development of the child. The children become self-learners and structure their own curriculum, working with and absorbing information at the time they are ready. The children cultivate their own natural desire to learn.

Goals:

  • To foster the eager, autonomous, and individualized learning of all students.
  • To enable students to develop their intellectual, physical, and social potential to the fullest extent possible.
  • To facilitate the development of each student's independence, responsibility, and respect for others.
  • To help students make smooth transitions from concrete learning to abstract thinking.
  • To allow students to attain mastery of basic skills and knowledge.
  • To encourage students to develop strong proficiencies in problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
