MONTESSORI

Developed by Dr. Maria Montessori Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952), Montessori education is based on these principles, as set forth by the American Montessori Society:

OUR CHARACTERISTICS

Curiosity

Dr. Maria Montessori understood that children have an inherent desire to learn. We foster their curiosity, a driving force in lifelong learning.

Command of concepts

Children absorb knowledge from their surroundings and from their tireless interest in manipulating materials and ideas.

Critical thinking

We help children develop both the ability and the determination to examine all sides of a question and reason thoughtfully.

Cooperation

At CVMS, cooperation and collaboration are part of our students’ learning process. We foster peer teaching and learning, as well as individual learning.

Compassion

We foster respect, kindness, and compassion for every individual and for life itself, in all its forms. Our students learn problem solving and conflict mediation, as well as stewardship of the earth.

Citizenship

The Montessori curriculum includes a wide worldview and a focus on peace. Our diverse student population celebrates many cultures and traditions. Students of all ages participate in service projects locally and globally.

Confidence

Through our approach, we cultivate confident learners who acquire the necessary foundation of skills and thirst for understanding that make them self-starters for a lifetime.
