They provide a broad and balanced education that includes science and the humanities, languages and mathematics, technology and the arts.

Montessori education is an educational approach characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical, and social development. Students in the early elementary grades learn concepts from working with materials, rather than by direct instruction, and enjoy choices of activity from within a prescribed range of options.
